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:

Students have a small on-campus garden among the residence halls. In 2012, the students have raised money to expand their garden and have worked with the Landscape Committee to be allowed to build 10 large raised bed gardens near the Instruction Center Building.

Georgia Tech's Landscaping has included edible plants throughout campus for many years. The plants are demonstration projects, lovely and interesting landscaping, and a surprise for the many urban hikers who visit our campus.
