Sustaining Seasons

Seeds spring from soil to leave dirt behind and grow.
Sprouts turn to flowers; petals open and bloom.
Crops mature with age and ripen for harvest
and leftover seeds are put aside to preserve.


With flowerbeds and age-old trees adorning every inch of the Hill, WKU students could never forget their connection to the natural world. It was in the food they ate on meal plans, the crops grown in gardens, the moments shared in blooming fields and the research done overseas.

From planting to harvest, from sowing to saving, students pursued sustainability and environmental dependability, and they never forgot to stop and smell the roses.
