Extreme Local – Made Fresh with Lobo Gardens Produce

UNM Lobo Gardens has partnered with Chartwells DineOnCampus at La Posada and the Chartwells Mercado in the SUB Plaza Level to bring campus diners healthier, fresher options! Lobo Gardens produce will now be part of delicious meals for students on campus. As more produce is grown in our expanding campus gardens you can be sure to expect more tasty veggies on your plate. Look for the “Extreme Local – Made Fresh with Lobo Gardens Produce” stickers (see below) on special Chartwells Mercado Deli sandwiches that use Lobo gardens produce. We’ll keep you up to date about more “Extreme Local” developments as they become available on our Extreme Local Produce page on the website: https://unmlobogardens.wordpress.com/extreme-local-produce/!
