UMass Sesquicentennial


Recipe

 

 

 

150 varieties of fresh fruit will be used in the creation of the 15,000lb fruit salad. Of the 150 varieties, over 50 different varieties of fresh fruit used in our recipe has been grown locally by the UMass Cold Spring Orchard, UMass Student Farm, the UMass Permaculture Initiative, and various local producers including Joe Czajkowski Farm. We will also be sourcing a majority of our fruit regionally in an effort to support the resiliency of the New England food system. How will we use 15,000 lb of fruit?
