Anita Haeder Garden

Black Hills State University



The Anita Haeder Garden at Black Hills State University serves as an educational resource. Students are able to plant fruits and vegetables in various conditions and study growing patterns among them. The Anita Haeder Garden stretches 70ft by 100ft and is home to organic crops, native species, and habitats. This is an area for students to experiment, work, and learn. In the past, students have grown crops in sawdust, compost, exposed, and many various other methods of planting.  

It is estimated that the garden requires 550+ hours of planting, weeding, harvesting, and ground preparation each year! To get involved, contact Debbie Liddick, Assistant Director, Facilities and Sustainability, at
