ER-T2-2: Organic Garden
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 UALR Sustainability Committee issued a small start-up grant to the Anthropology Department, the Anthropology Club, and the Non-profit Leadership organization. The garden grant is to create a sustainable organic garden focused on native Arkansas plants indigenous to and suitable for the local climate. Objectives of the garden are to promote local biodiversity, develop low maintenance, local gardening strategies, and to provide a laboratory for educational studies.
