Joseph and Emma Lin Biological Orchard and Gardens

The Joe and Emma Lin Biological Orchard and Gardens (BOG) is an opportunity for students, staff and faculty to convert an underutilized landscape in the heart of the campus into a living museum which showcases permaculture practices and biodiversity. A quarter of the space features a first-of-its-kind orchard of heirloom California fruit trees threatened with extinction. Visitors to the garden are free to sample the harvest. The remaining space serves as an outdoor ecological classroom, featuring drought-tolerant plants native to South Africa, the Mediterranean, Australia, Chili, and California.
