A brief description of the institution’s community garden:
The Lehigh Community Garden is located on Goodman Campus. Community gardens are multifaceted resources that help communities stimulate development and social interaction, produce nutritious foods, beautify neighborhoods, and preserve green space. Participation in the garden is open to University faculty, staff, students, alumni, and community members. Annual/seasonal plot leases allow participants to grow produce in their own plot and it gives them access to shared garden resources and growing spaces.
