COFGA is open to new student members at any point during the year. We don’t require any specific time commitment: “come when you can, stay as long as you like!” We have many members and a co-president team that organize the meetings and events.

We gather weekly. Here is a list of what we might be doing on a given week!

  • Harvesting for Colby dining halls or the Waterville Food Bank
  • Hosting a public harvest dinner with our produce
  • Tabling for a fall festival or environmental showcase on campus
  • Visiting local farms for lessons and volunteer sessions
  • Gleaning at the Waterville Farmers’ Market
  • Working to close or open the garden for the harvest season
  • Planting and watering seedlings in the greenhouse
  • Creating a garden layout for the upcoming season
  • Hosting a bonfire at the garden
