The University of Bridgeport Class of 2016 has planted over forty different vegetables including tomatoes, peppers, and zucchini thanks to a donation from Ganim’s Garden Center in Fairfield. UBPAI students tend to the garden daily and hope to obtain a significant amount of vegetables to be donated to the Connecticut Food Bank. Fresh vegetables will be a healthy change from canned goods for the community.
