Hidden away at San Diego State University, in the shadow of Hardy Tower, is the art department.
About nine months ago SDSU staff member Jim Cavolt had an idea.
“My thought was that we had these pre-built planters, that had these really ugly hedges in them,” Cavolt said. “And they weren’t doing anybody any good. So I thought it would be a great idea if we could make a garden out of it.”
So he began the process of getting permission from the university to turn the planters into a vegetable garden.
