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 University of Richmond has created an on-campus organic garden where students, faculty, and staff can have their own 15' x 10' plot of land to grow vegetables, fruits, and flowers. The garden is organic, so pesticides are banned and only the use of organic fertilizers is permitted. The garden is open from Mid-March until October. There are required information sessions that individuals must attend to learn about organic farming principles and gardening principles. The orientation is taught by Cary Jameson and Megan Zanella-Litke. Students are encouraged to participate by working alongside experienced gardeners throughout the growing season.
