Food is a great equalizer.  We all eat it, enjoy it, have opinions about it and need it to survive.  At the Bowdoin Organic Garden, we believe that not all calories are created equally, and that it matters how our sustenance is grown and where it comes from.  We also appreciate eating for enjoyment and not just survival, and therefore seek out foods and growing methods that provide exceptional taste.  The Bowdoin Organic Garden strives to foster an appreciation for and understanding of taste and high quality food and draw correlations between seed selection, growing methods, food preparation and pleasurable outcomes.  We recognize that good eating and health start on the farm or in the garden, and aim to sustain, educate and please the campus community in the dining halls, in the classrooms and at the farm.
