Denison University is committed to nurturing ecological sustainability both on campus and in the world beyond. We recognize that environmental responsibility is a way of life, not just a trend, and that new science continually brings new opportunities for improvement, so the active commitment to nurturing sustainability will never end.
The aim of the Denison Community Garden is to increase awareness of local food production and sustainable agriculture, and is funded by the Environmental Sustainability Venture Fund.
Garden plots are available in two sizes and can be rented by groups of students and faculty for the summer. Renters work together to maintain the garden by caring for their plots, participating in garden workdays, and growing produce in an environmentally sustainable way.
Here are some resources for managing your community garden plot:
