Enjoy a meal and support Allen Centennial Gardens! Perkins Restaurant (5237 University Avenue) will donate 10% of all meal and bakery sales made between 3:00-8:00 PM on October 26 to the Allen Centennial Gardens. In addition to this contribution, the Olbrich Garden Club (which has organized this fundraiser) will supply matching funds.
The Allen Centennial Gardens comprise 2.5 acres of teaching gardens managed by staff affiliated with the University’s Department of Horticulture. The gardens feature a variety of landscaping designs and plant-communities–including experiments with culinary herb and kitchen gardens.
The gardens also afford volunteer and internship opportunities! Students and members of the public who are interested in contributing their time to a variety of gardening tasks are invited to contact Ed Lyon, Head Gardener, with that expressed interest and availability.
