2023 Recipient: Harvest Room, University of Wisconsin–Oshkosh
An idea from a student leader has grown into a significant operation on campus and helps provide freshly grown lettuce and herbs to the campus community. In fact, one of the Harvest Room student employees has created a career out of their experience working in the Harvest Room and now works for Fork Farms, running her own hydroponic farm. Brian Warzynski, assistant director of dining, has been instrumental in the creation, growth, and presence of the Harvest Room and has shared the success of the Harvest Room with other universities.
