Does the institution have an on-campus garden where students are able to gain organic farming and/or gardening experience?:
Yes

A brief description of the garden:

All of the Lyle Center's gardens are fully organic, meaning that chemical pesticides and fertilizers are not used. The successful organic gardens work with natural processes to enhance the soil and control pests, two activities commonly managed with chemicals in modern agricultural operations.

In addition, the Collins College of Hospitality Management and the College of Agriculture have an interdepartmental garden which provides both food to the student-run Kellogg Restaurant and hands-on experience to students in designing and working in local sustainable farming.
