Western Michigan University - 1940 Howard St., Kalamazoo (behind Stadium Drive apartment complex at Stadium/Howard Intersection)

Name: Olivia Walser

The WMU Student Garden has been running since 2010 and is now a large community garden available to the WMU and local community with over 50 plots. It was first an effort by a registered student organization, and was operated by the WMU Office for Sustainability during the 2013 growing season. Management again changed hands starting during the 2014 growing season and is co-managed by Biology Club (BioClub) and Students for a Sustainable Earth (SSE). A wide range of plot sizes are available and there are events throughout the season including a starter giveaway on opening day, a cookout, and volunteer opportunities.
