A brief description of the institution’s community garden:

Ithaca College Community Gardens, located on the lower portion of the IC campus and off of Farm Pond Road, are student-run gardens. We experiment with many aspects of sustainable gardening and farming including permaculture design, crop rotation, companion planting, four-season food production, and heirloom seed saving. We all help to organize classroom tours, assist with student research, and host harvest dinners and other special events for volunteers and community members. The IC Organic Garden is also currently working with Ithaca College’s permaculture garden and rooftop garden on Terrace 2.
