For the past few years, we have been increasing the number of edible plants that we tend on the campus. They range from our Columbia Orchard to an occasional blueberry plant in the landscape.All edibles on campus are free for all to harvest, except the managed raised beds in the Community Gardens.
A group of students have located and mapped the edibles on campus. Thanks to Madelyn Hamilton ( SU 2013), we now have a beautiful hand drawn map of the location of the edibles on campus. Download a pdf of the map in 8.5x11 size.
Do you yearn to grow some food for yourself, your friends and family, for those in need? We have two p patch- style gardens on campus with 31 raised beds available for students, staff and faculty. The Broadway Community Garden is located at Broadway and E. Columbia. The Chardin Community Garden is located along the walkway that connects E. Cherry and E. Jefferson between Chardin Hall and SU Park. If you're interested in acquiring a plot, please email Janice Murphy.
