The Garden in its prime, Fall 2009




Sustainable Lawrence University Gardens is a student-run, non-profit project of the university.
Our mission is to engage and educate the Lawrence and greater Fox Cities communities
through connection to sustainable and organic agricultural processes.

Established in 2005, the garden is now in its third season of operation. Every year we start our seedlings in the greenhouse and eagerly anticipate the last frost date in mid-May so that we can plant in the ground. Our recently constructed hoop house allows us to extend our growing season.

We grow many heirloom and unique varieties of produce, click here to view the 2007 produce listing

Please come visit us at the garden or at the Farmer's Market in Appleton on Saturdays during the summer. Group visits are warmly received.

Check back soon and tell your friends to do the same!


We have a wealth of photos from the events of past years--check them out!


Earth Day 2007 was a day of bed-shaping, hoop house building, planting, and music!




Sustainable Lawrence University Gardens has only been made possible with the help of a large group of contributors. Benefactors have assisted the garden in many ways ranging from monetary contributions, to donation of services and supplies, to volunteer work. The garden, its workers, and the university would like to thank:
