Students manage the Beloit Urban Garden (BUG) that produces sustainable, organic, and ecologically-sound food connections to the Beloit College campus. Working as part of a team, you will grow produce, learn how to sell it, and research how the food you grow fits into our local food ecosystem and infrastructure. BUG maximizes Wisconsin’s growing season and is designed to be aesthetically pleasing to humans and important pollinators.
