Here are samples of what the in-house floral design talent at
University Catering have created with the use of UC Davis
Campus Grown greenery.

UC Davis Campus Grown greenery is the product of a partnership between UC Davis Grounds and Landscape Services and University Catering.  This initiative began when University Catering, managed by Sodexo, was investigating ways to improve the sustainability of the floral arrangements used to decorate catered events on campus.  They approached UC Davis Grounds and Landscape Services regarding the possibility of extending their "UC Davis Campus Grown" brand to include floral and greenery arrangements.

Since the Grounds and Landscape Services division is already in the business of pruning, they figured it was a good idea to earn extra revenue while they were at it.  Now, rather than spending their budget on outside vendors, University Catering keeps these dollars on campus to pay for the Grounds labor involved in collecting and delivering the clippings to University Catering's in-house floral design talent.
