Progressive Gardens Give UNM Community Something to Howl About

Real estate development or "RED" garden

By Erin Zimmerer and Jamie Garcia

The Lobo Gardens effort saw its beginnings in December of 2009, when then freshman, Alex Borowski, took it upon himself to plant the first ever on-campus vegetable garden near the Hokona residence hall.

Shortly thereafter, Borowski was forced to uproot his garden by the University of New Mexico Physical Plant Department due to lack of permission, however, since then, Lobo Gardens have blossomed in four locations on and off campus, including the location of Borowski’s original garden.
