‘BOG’ Reaps a Bounty of Fresh Produce for Dining Halls from Bowdoin College on Vimeo.

The Bowdoin Organic Garden, or BOG, produces about $25,000 worth of organic produce for college dining each year. Extra produce is also donated to the local food pantry. In its 8th season, the organic garden has three plots: one on campus, the main one on Pleasant Hill Road in Brunswick, and a third at Wolfe’s Neck Farm in Freeport, for a total of about 1.5 acres. Student interns are hired to work in the garden during the summer, and student members of the Organic Garden Club volunteer during the academic year. Students are supervised by the organic garden manager and assistant, Sara Cawthon and Marielle Matthews.
