The Gleeson Library joined the USF Farmstand this past Thursday, on the lawn outside Library. We offered books and DVD’s about organic gardening, real food, and healthy cooking for check out from right there out on the lawn.
USF Farmstand is part of Community Garden Outreach (ENVA 145) and offers homemade meals made with fresh veggies, fruits, and herbs grown in the organic garden on campus.
USF students are serving up fresh (and cheap!) deliciousness from USF’s organic garden on Thursday, March 22, from 12-2. On the menu are 2 different salads, 2 different soups, 3 desserts and a gang of frittatas. Weather permitting, the farmstand will be set up on the grass between the library and Kalmanowitz Hall. We’re bringing books and DVDs about organic gardening, real food, and healthy cooking that Gleeson Library borrowers can check out on the spot.
We are what we eat! But eating well can be challenging for busy people with odd hours or maybe not much money or running low on Dons Dollars. The library has hundreds of cookbooks in print and online and we’d like your recommendations, either of something we already have or a book we should acquire.
Some cookbooks aimed at students or anyone looking for good easy recipes are listed below. Try these or browse the link above; if you’ve used any please let us know what you think. You can even add a book review with the “Add a Review” button in the book’s library catalog record (more info here). Or make a recommendation for library purchase.
