Campus Garden

The Campus Garden was started in the summer of 2008 with assistance from Dining Services, the Biology and Facilities Management Departments and the Campus Kitchen Project. The half acre garden is planted in vegetables and herbs and is run by volunteers. Compost is produced by the campus composting program with prep food scraps from Dinning Services and leaves from the Grounds Department. The compost helps build the soil and nourish the plants. Most of the produce is used by the Campus Kitchen Project but some herbs and vegetables have been utilized by Washington and Lee Dining Services to complete the recycling process.  The garden is most quickly accessed from the upper Law School parking lot.  There is a trail that starts at the Peterson Data Center located at the upper end of the lot and goes up the hill to the garden.  Volunteers work in the garden on Thursday mornings during the growing season.  For more information contact Nicole Poulin, the Campus Garden Coordinator at
