Eliada Campus Farm Program

Eliada has deep agricultural roots, having once been a working farm in the early and mid-1900’s. Today, Eliada’s Campus Farm program provides food and educational opportunities for their 400 students and residents 365 days of the year. The farm currently consists of three growing facilities; a geodesic Grow Dome, a hoophouse, and a market garden. Between the three facilities, the farm program is equipped to grow year-round. Produce from the farm goes directly to Eliada’s kitchen where it is used to create nutritional, fresh meals for the students served on campus. A portion of the Market Garden is also dedicated to a therapeutic tea garden where they grow herbs youths help bag and drink as a self-soothing ritual. Bounty & Soul began partnering with Eliada in 2023 to purchase their excess produce for our Produce to the People community markets and provide production support.

Farm Volunteer Workdays: 1st Friday of each month 10am-12noon- Click here to sign up!
