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 student garden currently consists of nine raised beds of various dimensions, a cold frame and a tool shed and has plans to expand. The garden was created in Fall 2010 by the students of the Experimental College course "Emerging Alternatives in Modern Agriculture". In this course, students learned about growing techniques, composting, soil quality, vegetable varieties, and more. They used the garden as a space to put what they have learned into practice. Currently, the garden is taken care of by members of the Tufts Sustainability Collective.
