Community Garden Initiative

SU has recently started a community organic garden project for faculty and staff as part of a campus well-being initiative. The garden is located on the Adams Avenue Loop near Burd run, and has been divided into 10' x 10' plots. Individuals or groups of faculty and staff can adopt a plot and plant vegetables, fruits or flowers using organic methods.

Wellness benefits of this project include physical activity, production of healthy food, social interaction and stress management. Interested faculty can get students involved to learn about organic gardening methods.

If you are a faculty or staff member and are interested in adopting a plot, please contact Benefits Manager Maryrose Wilson (477-1124).
