Community Garden

students and staff work in garden during annual planting partyThe Loyola Community Garden is a raised bed organic vegetable and herb garden. It is located 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 the Environmental and Sustainability Studies department.

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.

Loyola Sustainability welcomes you to visit the Loyola Community Garden to harvest herbs and vegetables as they become available throughout the summer season.  All produce is open to Loyola community for harvesting.
