A brief description of the garden:

Students broke ground on the Towson University Urban Farm in spring 2010. Students were given a plot of land near the Administration Building, which they tilled and prepared for planting. They plant seeds in the garden during springtime and tend to it throughout its growth and into harvest in the summer and fall. Vegetables such as sweet potatoes, corn, and tomatoes are grown in the garden and donated to local non-profit organizations.
