Skidmore’s Community Garden is located on the green outside of Wiecking Hall. Its goal: to use sustainable practices to grow good food for the Skidmore College community.

The Skidmore Community Garden grows food and also serves as an outdoor classroom, a gathering place, and a tool to educate about sustainability and sustainable food systems. Community members are welcome to help in the garden during the growing season. For updates on Community Garden events, please check the Sustainable Skidmore Facebook page or Tumblr account.
