Environmental Studies Teaching Garden
Many students in the Environmental Studies Program are passionate about small-scale
local food production, which generally provides healthier food options with lower
environmental costs. To provide students with first hand experience in local food
production, Professors Richard Andrus and George Meindl help to manage a student-run
community garden in the Science 1 courtyard.
This space not only provides fruits and vegetables for the campus community, but also serves as a teaching tool for students to learn about food production and the management of agricultural landscapes. Currently, a team of students is re-designing the garden to turn it into a production garden for the on-campus food co-op.
