Students Garden in the Desert

Bastyr University California's two-year-old campus has passionate students, dedicated faculty, extensive clinical, lab, and culinary space, and miles of sparkling beaches nearby. One thing it does not yet have is a campus garden.
Four naturopathic medicine students set out to fix that by building a garden on a student's property in the nearby Santa Rosa Mountains. Their Peace Garden lets students practice their newfound skills in botanical medicine and nutrition. It lets them work with their hands to balance the work of their minds in the classroom. And it offers a community space for gathering around a shared passion: the healing power of living things.

This blog contains the most recent updates and developments for Bastyr University's San Diego campus, which opened in fall 2012.

The San Diego campus and clinic is located at 4106 Sorrento Valley Boulevard in the center of the city's life sciences cluster and approximately 14 miles north of downtown.

It lies within walking distance of the San Diego Coaster commuter train (which connects to more light-rail lines), and is within a short drive of the University of California-San Diego, Scripps Mercy Hospital and the VA San Diego Medical Center.
