Commission Description:

The Garden Commission’s main mission is to provide healthy and organic food to students on campus through the FRESH Basic Needs Hub. The Garden Commission is mainly focused on the garden in Arroyo Vista, which is run by students throughout the school year. By growing and harvesting produce with students’ help, we can encourage others to learn how to garden as well as be more sustainable. The commission also works closely with other organizations and commissions, such as the Sustainability Commission through ASUCI and the Sustainability Resource Center.
