There are lots of ways to get involved in the garden! We have class field trips, weekly harvest parties in fall and other community events. If you'd like join us for any of these activities or have ideas for new ones, please contact us or come to one of our community events!

Lunch in the Garden – Join us once a week during the summer for "Lunch in the Garden". See what’s happening in the garden, meet other people interested in gardening, and share seasonal delicacies. Some people choose to do some light work during lunch while others sit and rest under the shade of the Linden trees. Check the calendar for dates.

Work party times – During the fall, weekly harvest parties are organized by the garden interns. Check out our calendar to see when the next party is scheduled.

Teaching resource – the garden is used as a teaching resource for classes such as The Biology of Food and Environmental Science. Activities range from tours to extra credit assignments to experiments using garden soil. Students from the Environmental Residential College are also involved. If you'd like to get one of your classes involved, please contact Jen Klug ( or Tod Osier (

LEAF (Leaders for Environmental Action at Fairfield) is a student club devoted to grass-roots campus projects. Many LEAF members are involved in the garden. Any member of the campus community is welcome to join LEAF. To join the e-mail list and find out where and when you can attend LEAF's weekly meetings, contact
