Organics Guild

Mission Statement

The mission of the Organics Guild is to provide students with experiential learning through regenerative gardening practices. We strive to promote student autonomy while cultivating knowledge about resilient food systems in cold climates. Our aim is to implement food sovereignty practices and help address food insecurity in Gunnison by supplying locally produced food to Western students and the Gunnison community. We welcome anyone to join us in our garden spaces regardless of gardening knowledge or experience!
