Adopt-A-Bed Program

Campus clubs, organizations and students can "Adopt a Bed" and grow their own vegetables for free! Ogier Gardens staff provide the seeds, seedlings, fertilizer, and even water it for you. You get to eat the produce! We prefer to have a group of 3 or 4 students assigned to each bed. We can also pair people up once we determine who’s interested.

Benefits include:

  • Receiving hands-on experience in gardening
  • Harvesting produce you have helped grow
  • Receiving assistance and advice from the garden staff members
  • Getting exercise, fresh air, and sunshine
  • Knowing exactly where your food comes from and how it was grown
  • Being part of a dynamic community of gardeners

Responsibilities include:

  • Planting, weeding, and watering your assigned plot
  • Devoting two hours weekly (individually or as a group) to general garden improvements
  • Weighing and recording the types of produce harvested
  • Self-organizing within the club to divide duties
  • Using only Organic practices and inputs (ie. fertilizer, etc.) approved by the gardens' staff
