The Learning Garden promotes interdisciplinary academic achievement, leadership development and sustainable food systems.
Students in the Building Construction Technology program design, build, plumb and repair structures as part of the hands-on degree program.
The farm has almost 30 sheep, two dozen cows, five alpacas, three rabbits, two goats, a horse, some chickens, and a group of dogs and cats at a next door kennel.
The Rock Creek Campus is about 12 miles west of downtown Portland in the growing Beaverton-Hillsboro area. Rock Creek classes frequently use the neighboring farm and wetland areas as outdoor learning labs. The campus houses the Tualatin Hills Parks and Recreation’s sports complex, and is also home to a fully functioning farm with sheep, rabbits, llamas and cows. Rock Creek served 23,631 students in the 2014-15 academic year, and is led by Rock Creek Campus President Dr. Sandra Fowler-Hill.
