De Anza College students come together and work hard to start the garden outside of the Kirsch Center on Oct. 16.

De Anza College student Liana Hua welcomed volunteers to help start a garden outside the Kirsch Center on Wednesday morning, Oct. 16.

Hua, studying environmental science, said she will welcome help from volunteers at the garden on Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The school garden offers students an opportunity to learn how food grows.

“People know food comes from grocery stores, but they’ve never seen how food grows,” Hua said.

She said she never knew kale grows in a palm-like tree until she volunteered at Veggielution Community Farm, a non-profit community farm in San Jose.

“It made me want to start a school garden,” she said.

Kristin Sullivan, environmental studies professor, said she was excited to hear Hua come up with the idea of a school garden.

“We used to have a garden,” said environmental studies instructor Kristin Jensen Sullivan, “And we now are very interested in having one back.”
