ECOS Campus Garden in full bloom

Behind Goodman Hall lives one of Oglethorpe’s best-kept secrets.

Managed by the Environmentally Conscious Oglethorpe Students (ECOS), the Campus Garden is a collection of planters kept by members of the Oglethorpe community. Despite relentless rain this summer, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and herbs flourished under the watchful eye of students and faculty. A new crop of eggplant and melons are on the way for a late harvest.

Dr. Roarke Donnelly oversees ECOS as faculty advisor.
