Campus Garden

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to garden and the whole neighborhood gets tomatoes. 

The Lake Forest College Garden was established in 2010. We have been listed in the top ten reasons to attend the college, have expanded student contact with agriculture, and sparked a number of food-oriented initiatives on campus.

Each spring the Environmental Studies Program hires student interns to manage the garden over it’s growing season. Interns are responsible for everything in the garden, from planning the layout, planting, and harvesting, to managing the sale of produce on campus and at the Lake Forest Farmers’ Market.  

A variety of veggies, fruits, and herbs are planted in the garden, and the selection changes every year depending on what the students choose to plant. 

Produce from the garden is sold on campus during Campus Sale Days and in town at the Lake Forest Farmers’ Market. When supplies allow, the produce is donated to ARAmark to be served in the cafeteria on campus.

The Growin’ at Rowan blog is a collection of images and daily updates from the garden interns. Follow on Tumblr to see what they’re up to!
