Seventy two 15' by 15' plots.

The ASUM Student/Community Garden (Garden) is located behind the Lewis and Clark Villages student housing on South Higgins Avenue, one block before Pattee Canyon Road. The Garden is comprised of seventy-two 15' x 15' plots, seventy of which are cultivated. The uncultivated plots include a compost pile and two plots which serve as a commons complete with a picnic table and sandbox. Of the seventy cultivated plots, three are the responsibility of the Garden manager - two Food Aid plots, and a third is a berry patch with well established raspberries, strawberries intended, chives going bonkers, and a future as a berry patch/perennial herbs plot.

Becoming One of the Gardeners - Plots are distributed on a first come, first served basis on Opening Day, which is the first Saturday of April. Preference is given to returning gardeners, who automatically reserve their plot at the end of the season if they desire. Rental fees are $25/$30 (students/community members) per plot per season as well as a $15 deposit for first-year gardeners.
