Hidden along one side of the library is an area of what used to be an unused space of plain brick. For the past 7 years, there has been a quiet but busy volunteer movement of amateur gardeners. Volunteers have used their time and energy to create this haven. Gardeners can get their hands dirty, relax, and learn from each other about how to grow in the city.
The Countway Community Garden is in a continuous stage of evolution. We’d like to share this space with our community members as it continues to grow as a little oasis right here on campus. There are many ways to help with the Countway Community Garden. We hold two major events each growing season. We are always looking for folks to tend beds, plant and grow, or to help with logistics and appreciation. New and experienced gardeners are welcome.
