An Ecological and Educational Haven:

The Pitzer College Student Garden

Food justice. Community engagement. Regenerative agroecology. In a first-person essay, Em Kuhn ’22 describes how these themes inspired the revitalization of the Pitzer College Student Garden after a year and a half of neglect due to the pandemic.

“The seeds we plant today will be nourished by bright-eyed Pitzer students tomorrow, and though these trees will not bear fruit until long after I’ve graduated, they will serve as a living labor of love that will connect generations of Pitzer students to come,” Kuhn writes.
