Robb Garden

Robb Garden

The Ted and Chris Robb Garden provides an outdoor common space that facilitates discussion, reflection, and interaction between Pacific students, faculty, staff, local farmers, and other members of the Stockton community.  Throughout the year, the garden provides opportunities to learn about gardening and plants, sustainability, nutrition, and food systems and to build community through the garden work. Interested in learning how to garden or learning skills to upkeep a garden you have at home? This is the perfect place to volunteer to learn from Master Gardener Dr. Mark Brunell who uses only organic and natural methods for gardening.
