Victory Gardens & Chickens
-City Bountiful: A Century of Community Gardening in America, Laura Lawson
In an student led initative to improve the quality and content of the food pantry, the pantry now proudly hosts 25 garden beds, 13 chickens, and mini orchard! All produce goes to the food pantry, providing fresh produce and eggs for pantry users. Healthy minds, healthy bodies!
The Center for Service-Learning & Community Engagement has two garden locations (322 Home Ave & 530 York Street) and has spring, summer, and fall seasonal gardens beds to benefit the campus food pantry. Gardens are overseen by our AmeriCorps VISTA and is maintained by student volunteers. We have garden beds to adopt if you would like to grow your own food, we just ask you donate 10% of your produce to the pantry. Check out our adopt - a- plot program in the menu.
