Organic Garden

     Here at Saint Michael's we are fortunate to have our own organic garden! The organic garden is located past the rotunda down the road and right over the railroad tracks.  The organic garden is part of the sustainability effort on campus. 

Hey Taylor!

     Every Tuesday while the weather is nice, the organic garden has a farm stand from 11:00-1:00 in front of the chapel.  The garden usually sells-
