A brief description of the institution’s community garden:

The Campus Farm provides an outdoor learning space designed to engage our campus community in experiential learning and best practices surrounding sustainable land use and food production. This space is one of the few co-managed spaces on campus, through a strong partnership with Cascadia and UW Bothell. The farm is roughly a half-acre with 9 raised beds and fruit trees surrounding the site. Classes use the site for research, clubs attend work parties to learn about sustainable agriculture practices, forage is encouraged for the campus community, and donations to the Husky Pantry and Kodiak Cave are made frequently. Our 2020 donations included over 120 vegetable plant starts and 14 heads of garlic and 7 pounds of dry beans to Kodiak Cave and Husky Pantry (with COVID restrictions and limited operational capacity).

Update to address feedback:
The Campus Farm is open and free to use by the greater community in terms of foraging, supporting lectures and workshops offered to community groups, and food is donated to local community food banks and soup kitchens
