Opening of the South Asia Garden


Students, Faculty, Staff, Alumni






The South Asia Garden is a living classroom where campus visitors can learn about South Asian cultures, sustainable food production, healthy eating, and the global histories of vegetables and herbs common to South Asian foodways. The garden is a collaboration between the South Asia Institute (SAI) and University Housing and Dining established with a UT Austin Green Fund grant. Join us for our opening event, featuring a sitar performance by Aruna Kharod and readings of garden-related poetry in five South Asian languages (Bengali, Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil, Urdu) by SAI graduate students.
