Thanks to all of a gardener-volunteers who help us mark plots in the spring, clean up in the fall and report water leaks or other concerns. Special thanks to those who manage the extensive water distribution infrastructure, navigate our relationship with Cornell, handle finances and communications, and coordinate deliveries to the Food Donation Network. The Cornell Campus Activities Office coordinates all Cornell-associated Clubs and the Cornell real estate department provides support for our license to use the land. Cornell Farm Services provides all of the plowing, mowing, compost delivery and cover crop services. Our water access is provided by Bolton Point via metered access to a nearby hydrant. The Cornell College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) has worked with us extensively to work out appropriate rules and expectations for our activities as stewards of the land.
