About The Marlboro Farm
Started in 2002, the organic farm at Marlboro College provides members of the community an opportunity to learn about vegetable gardening and literally reap the benefits. Located just south of the Persons' parking lot, the farm includes about 5,000 square feet of terraced gardens on a nice south-facing slope. A large compost bin breaks down all the food and paper waste from the dining hall into rich garden soil. Plans are underway for a solar-heated greenhouse, to provide for more year-round production. Students and community members are encouraged to take part in farming activities in the spring and fall, including planting, weeding, landscaping and harvesting on a regular basis as well as on "work days." Farm managers stay through the summer to keep the garden growing and harvest produce for community members.
