The goal of the Luther College Student Garden is to provide Luther students, faculty, and staff with organically grown fruits, vegetables, herbs, and blooms as well as to educate students and the community about the benefits of low-impact sustainable agriculture. By planting and consuming organic plants and the saving of organic seeds, we hope to gain a better understanding of the structure, lifestyle, and development of various vegetations while educating and enhancing the surrounding community for the growth and enjoyment of future generations.

We provide food grown in a sustainable, low-impact way and education about our practices to the faculty, students, and staff of Luther College as well as to the surrounding community.

It is important for students to eat healthy vegetables and fruits that are locally grown and pesticide-free so that they understand the health and various other benefits of organic agriculture.

The Luther Dining Services Staff is willing to cook using organic foods, as well as Sunnyside and Marty’s Cyber Café. Students have expressed interest in eating a healthier diet which is possible through cooperation on campus.

The Luther College Student Garden is located north of College Drive, off of Baker Drive-behind the big red barn.
