What We’re About
Are you a self-motivated hard-working team player that loves to garden? The Garden crew works collaboratively to grow a wide array of vegetables, herbs, and fruits to provide for the Warren Wilson dining halls and community members. The crew also cares for a flock of heritage-breed chickens, raised for their eggs and meat.
There are also sub-crews of the garden, including:
- Herb crew: Runs and operates an on-campus apothecary that provides accessible and affordable herbal care to the Warren Wilson Community and beyond. Their work requires self and peer education in order to learn plant identification, medicinal properties of plants, folk tradition, product making, and cultivation/foraging techniques. Herb crew also hosts workshops led by crew members or individuals in the area to teach the community.
- Bee crew: Students work collaboratively to care for the Warren Wilson Apiary and educate the community about honey bees and native pollinators, as well as work on the general Garden Crew. Bee Crew makes products from the hive such as infused honey and beeswax candles.
