the Rewards of a Garden at the Conference Center
Patrons of Mercer's Conference Center are reaping the rewards of a new
garden this August. Chef Joe Chell and his staff are now harvesting cherry
tomatoes, beans, peas, carrots and a multitude of fresh herbs, and finding
clever ways of incorporating them into their menus.
began this spring, when Conference Center General Manager Frank DiBella
and Administrative Assistant Alanna Gutchigian planted some seeds indoors
that Gutchigian brought home from a student trip she took to Italy last
year. With plans to make better use of a sunny area just outside the Conference
Center's back door, the pair did their own planting, with some advice
from MCCC faculty member Amy Iseneker, who teaches Horticulture and Plant
Science. Also assisting were members of the college's facilities staff,
who installed a water source and tilled the area. More here
