Tyson's newest feature, The Tyson Research Garden, is complete and ready for planting. It consists of 5 separate planting beds that are 16m x 18m and is fully fenced to keep out any hungry deer. The garden is also irrigated via rainwater. Experiments are set to begin in this new location in the spring of 2015 after the soil has fully settled. Please learn more here.
