About the Garden
The BHSU campus garden, located south of the Yellow Jacket Apartments, was established in 2008 by students living in the residence halls. Since then, the garden has grown through the volunteer efforts of faculty and staff, student organizations, and community members. The garden occupies a space 70ft by 100ft. Everything planted, produced, and harvested is organic. We've estimated that the garden requires 550+ hours of planting, watering, weeding, harvesting, and ground preparation each year. The harvest is shared among all the members.
