A brief description of the institution’s community garden:
Campus Grows is a non-profit Registered Student Organization (RSO) that cares for two gardens, roughly 30,000-square-feet in size, that are located on the main campus of Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant. The gardens offer space for faculty, staff, students and local community members to grow fresh, organic fruits, vegetables and flowers in an educational community garden setting. In addition, designated garden space is used to grow vegetables and fruits which are donated to the local food pantry and the Isabella County Commission on Aging. In the summer of 2023, Central Sustainability is assisting student to restart this program.
