Learning Garden

Learning Garden

Southeast Campus has completed the first phase of a comprehensive outdoor Learning Garden to be used by students, staff, faculty, and community members. The Learning Garden has already enhanced and complemented classroom learning of many disciplines, and will continue to be integrated into even more classes. It will also provide a space for community education classes, clubs, and new and seasoned gardeners to grow organic food, observe and learn about perennials, and get their hands in the soil! The Learning Garden demonstrates different ways to garden in an urban setting, including a variety of urban compost methods, mason and leafcutter bees, herb spirals, a geodesic dome greenhouse, and more!

Food Forest at Southeast Campus

In 2016, the Southeast Grounds Department decided to promote edible landscapes, also known as a “Food Forest” to promote pollinators, sustainability and food security. The “Food Forest” project received a TGIF grant to introduce fruit trees, nut trees and berry bushes into the existing landscaping for the community to forage, making an instant connection to the environment possible when anyone can see, pick and eat what’s there. The “Food Forest” provides healthy food to the PCC community, the kitchen, the onsite child development center and community education classes. The “Food Forest” also acts as an extension of the learning garden, promoting urban agriculture and helping address food insecurity among the campus community.

Did you know you can rent a bike for only $15 per term? This includes a bike complete with fenders, a rack, lights, and other equipment, along with free support and basic adjustments.

During our Fall and Spring term, our lockers fill up within the first week of the term. Winter term usually has them filled by the third or fourth week.
