Abstract

This presentation details my experience with the Lynchburg College Community Garden at Beaver Point. My goal is to explain the sustainable aspects of the garden and the goals for the future. Students and faculty created the garden in 2016 in order to teach and practice sustainable agriculture and enrich the soil of an unused volleyball court bringing life back to the area. During the spring and summer of 2017 I helped with multiple garden projects such as donating produce to Lynchburg Grows, becoming pollinator friendly, raising chickens, and composting. I will outline a project that I designed during my summer internship--a rainwater collection and irrigation system-- including a description of the materials I chose and why. Finally I will touch on projects that are being planned for the future.
