Make your gift of $10 or more to support the Annual Fund's Organic Garden campaign and we will send you a packet of our honeybee flower mix that we use here on campus in our pollinator gardens so you can start your own pollinator patch at home!

The student-run Organic Garden has been a centerpiece of Randolph College's environmental studies curriculum for more than ten years. From raising chickens to planting organic vegetables and caring for the beehives, Randolph students get practical, hands-on experience in a living laboratory. An additional benefit of this campus space is the opportunity for students to reduce stress by getting their hands dirty and connecting with nature. 

Community members also grow vegetables on personal and communal plots using the principles of permaculture and indigenous and organic farming. Resident chickens provide fresh eggs and soil maintenance, while bees provide fresh honey.

Because of this and so many other environmentally friendly initiatives, Randolph College is consistently ranked as one of the 'Top Green Colleges' by The Princeton Review and is recognized as a bee-friendly campus by Bee City USA.

Thank you for your support of the Organic Garden and your spirit of Vita abundantior!
