URGENT - It is with great regret, and yet, even greater understanding that we support the following unfortunate directive from the University of Memphis. For the sake of all of our supporters, their families, friends, co-workers, and acquaintances, we ask to that you please adhere to this directive that limits access to our beloved garden for the time being. We believe that via such temporary limitations we will all be able to hang out together sooner as opposed to later. Your adherence and enduring support is greatly appreciated. Thank you from the TIGUrS Urban Garden!

History major Rosa Hill and her advisor, Ms. Amanda Lee Savage, are the cover image for the student e-news for this week! The photo is from the Earth Day Garden Party in the TIGUrS Urban Garden. They're planting part of the Student History Society and Phi Alpha Theta's "Pizza Garden" (designated in honor of all our pizza lectures.)
We'd love to invite everyone to the 4th Annual Cooper Young Garden Walk and get inspired on how to make your outdoor spaces both beautiful and sustainable. Hear talks on growing mushrooms, microgreens, edible flowers, composting, vertical growing, aquaponics and more.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by the CAESER table and our Water on Wheels (WOW) educational mobile museum at yesterday's 10th annual Earth Day Celebration at the University of Memphis in the TIGUrS Urban Garden. We enjoyed talking about the Memphis aquifer and its water with the University of Memphis community and Campus School students. This marks the 5th year of the WOW mobile being out and about in the Memphis community, educating visitors of many ages about the Memphis aquifer, and the 26th year that CAESER's been researching the Memphis aquifer. Many thanks to CAESER employees Dianna Dalton (and student!), Justin Baranski, and David Closs for their help with the WOW yesterday. Wally the Waterdrop made an appearance, too! CAESER is a part of the Herff College of Engineering at the University of Memphis. We are #DrivenByDoing. The WOW travels to festivals and schools, educating our community about the Memphis aquifer, the primary source of tap water for most of Memphis and Shelby County. The WOW was made possible by a grant from the International Paper Foundation. More details about the WOW may be found at www.memphis.edu/wateronwheels.
TIGER LIFE INTERNS MAKE TIGUrS GARDEN BETTER We have been privileged to have had some great interns from UofM's Tiger Life program work with us throughout the season. Please help us to thank these reliable and hard-working garden wranglers: (from left to right) Janeka Kirkland, James Kizer, and their Tiger Life coach, Maggie Richarson. GREAT WORK, FOLKS! Come back as often as you like!
Boscos TIGUrS SMaSH is on tap! We are proud to represent The U of M with this SMaSH beer - Single Malt and Single Hop. Cascade hops are multi-purpose, used for flavor and aroma. TIGUrS Urban Garden hops have a spicy, citrus character with a slight grapefruit characteristic.
Join CAESER on Wednesday, April 18 in the TIGUrS Urban Garden from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. University of Memphis. If it's not raining, we'll have the Water on Wheels mobile there, which is all about water, and is a great way to learn more about the Memphis aquifer. If it's raining, the event will be held inside the Rose Theater.
