The Bailey GREENhouse and Urban Farm is a passive solar greenhouse located in the Brody neighborhood of Michigan State University’s campus. The greenhouse grows certified organic herbs and produce that are sold to the dining halls on campus, Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center’s State Room, and Red Haven. Student workers and volunteers participate in duties which include harvesting, planting, weeding and most importantly, educating their fellow students and the local community about the significance of closing the food cycle loop.
The Bailey GREENhouse and Urban Farm encompasses many aspects of ecological stewardship; such as vermicomposting and composting.
Partnered with the Residential Initiative on the Study of the Environment (RISE) Program, Residential and Hospitality Services (RHS) and the MSU Student Organic Farm, the Bailey Greenhouse is a pioneer in sustainable agriculture in local community settings.
