Watch us Grow!
The Seeds@City Orchard is located on Park Blvd between the Harry West Gym and the P-building.
Urban farmer, Damian Valdez is in charge of our production activities at this site. We have grown over 2600 lbs of produce since January 2012. This produce is sold to our Community-supported agriculture shareholders, our weekly campus farm stand supports, and several local restaurants and markets in the community. All proceeds are used directly to support the farm, staffing and supply needs as the college does not currently support any farm maintenance.
We hope that this year will be even more productive! Stop by the Orchard to check out the progress and see what's growing, and say "hi" to Damian!
