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 garden is a 128' x 50' plot on the east side of campus, near the Facilities Complex and Disch-Falk baseball field. The facility will be managed by a working group with multiple stakeholders, which is co-chaired by a student assistant director of the Campus Environmental Center and a representative from the Division of Housing and Food Service. The garden's first-year goals are to establish a viable working relationship among stakeholders on campus, and establish a few harvestable crops (such as herbs).
