The Grantham Community Garden is a student-inspired, student-led effort to demonstrate and promote real-life concepts of sustainable agriculture is a necessary dimension of holistic Christian stewardship. We use this garden initiative as a means to educate students, faculty, and the broader community about the benefits of eating organic food and tapping into local farm economies for food resources. Through offering a CSA and occasionally holding/attending farmer's markets, we foster greater interaction between campus residents, regional farmers, and the surrounding public. Besides utilizing Messiah College's land and resources to produce fresh and healthy cafeteria food, a campus garden allows the college to experiment with endeavors in sustainable agriculture that can be implemented in urban agriculture and international agriculture.
