Does the institution have an on-campus garden where students are able to gain organic farming and/or gardening experience?:

A brief description of the garden:

The Students for Sustainable Living and Urban Gardening (SSLUG) have a garden on South Campus between the SBS and SBS West buildings where they grow a variety of vegetables. This is also where they use the compost they create from pre-consumer vegetable waste collected from the South Dining Hall.

Funding from the NAU Green Fund has been used to hire a Campus Organic Gardener (COG). The COG works up to 20 hours a week to support the SsLUG organization and the expanction of on-campus, organic gardens that will be accesible to students.

This year the University made the Campus Organic Gardener a permanent position at the university.
