BasilLoyola’s community garden was built in 2010 and is located directly behind Avila Hall. The garden is available for all members of the Loyola community throughout the growing season. We work closely with The Agricultural Society of Loyola, a club established in 2014, to ensure proper maintenance of our current garden and to search for prospective expansion sites.
