A brief description of the garden:

A College garden is located at the student-operated Miller Farm, which is part of the Earlham campus. At Miller Farm there is a garden maintained by current Miller Farm residents that is envisioned as an open educational space for all who are interested to learn about and gain gardening experience. There is a workday every Saturday year round that is open to students and community members where current residents of the farm organize and lead projects. There is also a community garden on Miller Farm where students and community members have their own plots to do with as they wish.
