With the help of a green thumb, East Carolina University's next wave of food sustainability debuted during this year's College Hill Block Party.
Greens, organically grown in a shipping container behind Jones Residence Hall, were served with a soy salmon bowl to the more than 5,000 students who attended the event.
Freshman Allison Clemmer of Greensboro was one of the first students to try the greens. She's happy to know she has additional options when choosing what to eat on campus.
"I try to eat as healthy as possible, so knowing it's organic helps a lot," said Clemmer.
