Community Garden

BasilThe Loyola Community Garden is a raised bed organic vegetable and herb garden on the Evergreen Campus next to Avila Hall. The garden was constructed in 2010 as part of a Kolvenbach research project, but it is now managed by sustainability staff and Environmental and Sustainability Studies.

The far east garden beds contain a variety of perennial herbs including sage, rosemary, thyme, and chives. The west beds contain a rotation of annual vegetables and herbs planted at the planting party hosted by sustainability staff each spring. All of the beds are open to the Loyola community for harvesting.
