The Learning Garden Club is a student group dedicated to growing organic food on campus. The group focuses on educating fellow students about the value of local, sustainable food systems. The garden is designed as a living laboratory that demonstrates the connections within human and natural systems. Students strive to help people understand how their food choices can impact their personal health, environmental integrity and the well-being of the community. The club has established an on-campus farmer-chef connection with the Culinary Arts Department.
