Boxer Gardens is a .4-acre property on Pacific University’s Forest Grove Campus that serves as an outdoor laboratory for students in applied sustainability and environmental science studies programs, as well as a venue for outdoor gathering.
Continuing the work once housed at the B Street Farm, Boxer Gardens provides students with opportunities to learn about organic gardening practices, educational outreach, policy development, sustainable community, and housing design.
The garden features a polyculture garden, woodland garden, pollinator garden and vibrant patio area.
