Ascend the gentle slope throughout the seasons. Peer into a wetland of cattails; take in the botanical, food and permaculture gardens; observe the wildflower meadow, geology path and—in the distance—the orchard. You cannot help but observe an essential reality: our natural and physical world is immeasurably diverse and ever changing.

At GCC's Outdoor Learning Laboratory, students engage in this natural and physical world to go beyond their classroom learning across many disciplines. The gardens restore ecological health, help feed and beautify our college community, and provide members of our wider community the opportunity to learn, enjoy and rest.
