A brief description of the institution’s community garden:

LaFarm, our three-acre Community Garden and Working farm, began in 2009 through a student-generated project to allow the Lafayette Community a place to grow their own produce, build community, and share food together. Our Community Garden sits on 1 acre; we currently offer 35 full (20' x 40') or half (10' x 40') garden plots for members of the community to rent for a season, which includes access to water through a student-built rainwater collection system, tools, educational events, bulk purchasing of seeds and supplies, and community-building programs such as work parties and potlucks.

Our community garden is about growing great food in a healthy environment; LaFarm works to strengthen a sense of community through a common goal of stewardship & cooperation.
