We are preparing for the season with the knowledge that there will be a number of challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic that could cause disruptions to our plans. We cannot be sure that we will be able to work as a group to mark plots, and Cornell Farm Services (who deliver compost, plow and mow) may not be available to service our site, among other potential challenges. We are opening up registration with the knowledge that we may need to issue refunds if the season cannot proceed as planned and ask for your understanding under these unprecedented circumstances. We will carefully follow all guidance and directives from Cornell, as well as the federal, state and local government. The safety of our gardeners and volunteers is paramount.

The Gardens are located on Freese Road in Dryden Approximately 2 miles from the Cornell Campus
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.
I'm new! How can I get help?
I'm experienced but have a question or concern!
