Campus Gardens

The Office of Sustainability maintains three food production sites on the Fairfax campus: the Innovation Food Forest, the Potomac Heights Vegetable Garden, and the Presidents Park Hydroponic Greenhouse. The Greenhouse and Gardens Program hosts hundreds of volunteers & dozens of interns every year, and it’s available for all volunteers and visitors!

Our Greenhouse & Gardens program is a free resource for fresh produce and hands-on experiences in sustainable agriculture. Purchase fresh produce and plants propagated in our Presidents Park Hydroponic Greenhouse at our Mason Marketplace store.
