Panther Plot

What is the Panther Plot?

The Panther Plot is UNI’s student-run garden. It was established in April 2013 as a student-led project by UNI Presidential Scholars. The focus of the group is to develop valuable gardening and leadership skills while providing fresh, locally grown produce to the university community.
