A brief description of the institution’s community garden:

The mission of UGArden is to build a community of students centered on a sustainable food system. The goals of UGArden are: 1) to teach students to grow food using organic practices through experiential learning; 2) to share healthy, sustainably grown food with members of the local community who are facing food insecurity; 3) to provide an opportunity for engagement, service and experimentation; and 4) to foster an entrepreneurial spirit. Since the summer of 2013, 20 homeschool families have been coming to UGArden once a week to plant and care for a plot of their own. With assistance from UGArden students and staff, the homeschool children learn to care for their own garden, from planting to harvest.
