Tier2-2: Organic Garden
|0.25 / 0.25||
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:
Regeneration, a student group dedicated to food justice and organic gardening, maintains two off-campus plots in a organic community garden owned by the college and a series of Earth Boxes on campus with informal oversight by the Director of the Botanical Gardens and the Director of Sustainability. There is also a small display garden in the Botanic Gardens. They also receive support from the Grounds department on campus. In the summer and fall they sell/distribute fruits, vegetables and legumes to the campus community. They have also created a public blog which they update regularly with their activities, theories, innovations and jokes.
