RE: campus gardens
You should check out the University of Wisconsin Eagle Heights Garden

Gardening Association website: http://www.communitygarden.org/index.html ;

I admire your energy. However, providing food for campus dining halls in any
sort of quantity is a large task requiring many strong backs, much
organization, and a kind of dedication that is hard to muster. There is one
large institutional organic farm that produces all of the food it needs on
campus, however the organizational pyramid that runs it might not be
appreciated by your fellow students. The establishment I'm referring to is,
of course, Louisiana's Angola prison farm.
However, good luck with your project.
