Chinese Parents of Yale Students Grow a Garden on Campus

An overgrown patch of land on the northern edge of Yale University is now filled with plenty of vegetables and spices - beans, scallions, tomatoes and cilantro, planted by parents from China whose children study and work here at the Ivy League school.

The urban garden was founded and cultivated by students and their parents who have retired and come along to stay with their children.

Parents from different cities of China have now made it a routine gathering to plant vegetables on the campus together and cook dishes and have meals together.

Wang Lunji, 65, whose son studies biology at Yale, says he appreciates the vegetables shared by his neighbors.

About a quarter of all international students at Yale come from China, according to China Daily. Yale, where the first Chinese earned a graduate degree in 1854, had 680 international scholars, 516 graduate students and 58 undergraduates from China last year.
