Denison University strives to be an exemplary steward of our natural world and a leader in sustainability. We take an intentionally multi-disciplinary approach to sustainability that balances environmental, economic and social responsibility. We believe that our approach to sustainability will support the well being of the college and the global community beyond. Our commitment to sustainability runs deep. Academic research, strategic investments in infrastructure and human resources, student-centered programming, plus community partnerships are central to our efforts. Whether in the classroom, the Licking County community or a country halfway around the globe, Denison students, staff and faculty lead by example. Together, we share a vision of a healthy future where people and the planet thrive.
The Denison Community Garden was created in 2010 with the aim of building a stronger sense of community and increasing awareness of local food production and sustainable agriculture. Around 100 members of the Denison community are gardening each year.
Garden plots are available in two sizes and can be rented by groups of students and faculty for the summer. Gardeners work together to care for their plots, participate in garden workdays, and grow produce in an environmentally sustainable way.
Here are some resources for managing your community garden plot:
