Coyote Garden

Coyote Garden LogoTogether We Grow!

ASI's Coyote Garden is a community garden at CSUSB that helps promote sustainability, agriculture and community on campus. Our team hosts volunteer events where students can learn about gardening, composting, sustainable irrigation and much more. All the produce grown and harvested at the garden is donated to the Obershaw DEN in SMSU South 224, in which students can pick up during their office hours. Join and connect with our community!

SustainabilitySustainability Graphic

The Coyote Garden implements many techniques to use resources as efficiently as possible. Drip irrigation is used to get water directly to the soil, reducing the amount of water lost to evaporation and strong winds. We also plant drought tolerant herbs such as rosemary, lemongrass, and lavender - which thrive in dry climates like ours and attract beneficial insects like bees and butterflies. No pesticides or toxic chemicals are used to manage weeds or pests in the garden. Weeds are pulled by hand and sprays made of cinnamon and mint oil are used to deter pests.
