The Pounder Vegetable Garden is located beside the McClintock Shed, which was used by Nobel Prize-winning geneticist and Cornell University alumna Barbara McClintock. She studied corn in the 1920s in the area that is now the lawn area in front of the Nevin Welcome Center. This garden displays a variety of vegetables and is used as a platform to demonstrate research in plant breeding, organic gardening, and sustainable practices for your own garden. Explore the interpretive signs around the garden to find some tips to reduce your carbon footprint when gardening.
