Since the very first summer that COA was in session, there has been an organic garden at the north entrance to campus. Originally used as a kitchen garden to supply the campus with fresh produce, the garden was later opened up to the wider Mount Desert Island community. Plots are available come spring, on a first-come, first-served basis.
