During the second year, Marshall University Instructor, Rick Abel, and his PROS Students, Parks and Recreation Organization of Students, took over the raised beds. The group did a fantastic job in maintaining the plants. By fall of 2013, the MU Sustainability Department hired their Lead Gardener, Angela Kargul, to manage the gardens and to coordinate with campus students, clubs, organizations, faculty and staff volunteers.
The Student Garden is located directly behind the Career Services building, 1687 5th Avenue.

Plants come from either donations or are raised in the Marshall Greenhouse.
Produce from this garden is distributed through weekly Market Days, serving university students, faculty and staff, as well as area residents. All are welcome to attend.
