A brief description of the garden:

Dilmun Hill Farm is a student-run farm that has been practicing sustainable agriculture on Cornell University's campus for more than a decade. Our mission is to provide students, faculty, staff and community with opportunities for experiential learning, group collaboration and research. Throughout the year we host work parties where volunteers work in the fields and experience the latest in sustainable agricultural practices. The student managers and steering committee members collaborate with the Organic Coordinator and Faculty Advisors to provide leadership in farm operations and disseminate information through education and outreach. We also collaborate with various organizations on campus, such as McDaniels Nut Grove. Our popular campus farm stand offers Dilmun Hill produce for sale from June through October and we supply local produce to Manndible Cafe in season.
