Montgomery Garden

Located between the Montgomery House and the Holland Union Building (HUB), the Montgomery Garden provides a space for students and the Dickinson community to learn about different types of plants and their uses. The garden is managed by the College Farm and every year, one student is enlisted to design the garden.

Students are especially encouraged to use this garden as a source for their cooking needs and familiarize themselves with new plants. This garden includes an herb garden, a pollinator garden, and an edible garden.
