Feeding the community

Senior Joey Korein (left) and junior Vidya Santosh harvest basil plants in the community garden just east of Alumni House. The two are members of the student group Burning Kumquat. The aim of the group, founded in the fall of 2007, is to raise consciousness of community, food and environmental issues. Members sell food and spices from the garden at the North City Market in St. Louis during the summer and plan to set up shop on the University campus during the school year.
