Clark Kerr Garden
Clark Kerr Campus Garden
The Clark Kerr Campus Garden is located behind the dining hall within the Clark Kerr Campus. Their mission is to be a space where anyone can hang out, pass through, learn something, collaborate, and enjoy food together. They hold skills training workshops and celebrations in the garden and around Clark Kerr’s edible landscapes.
The space consists of a series of ADA accessible raised beds as well as an orchard that grows a large variety of annual crops and perennial herbs. The space is designed as a demonstration garden showcasing various agroecology practices and holds regularly educational programming to teach students, staff, and community volunteers through hands-on workshops.
Who is it managed by?
The space is managed through Cal Dining’s Housing and Dining Sustainability Advocate’s (HADSA) Garden Coordinator in collaboration with the Campus Grounds Department. They work closely with dining hall staff and chefs to ensure that they have access and can bring in fresh, local herbs or produce into the dining hall. They also have an active role in campus garden initiatives and coordinate with the Basic Needs Committee to provide food for students who need it.
