Community Garden

Alfred State has a long tradition of fostering and nurturing agriculture through local and regional partnerships. In that tradition, the Alfred State Green Team launched the Alfred Community Garden in 2010 to provide hands-on education in sustainable agriculture to students, faculty, staff, and community members. The garden, which is located on land owned by Alfred State and governed by an independent board of directors, offers multiple opportunities for service learning projects and civic engagement.
