Edible Campus Gardens

Our mission is to engage the campus community in ecologically sound and just food systems through garden-based experience, education and research.

The Edible Campus Gardens create a living, learning laboratory environment on campus. During the growing season, we harvest a wide variety of vegetables and greens to sell at the University of Utah Farmers Market, trade with volunteers and donate to the FeedU Pantry. Since 1996, our gardens have been a resource for the campus community to receive fresh produce, conduct research and facilitate sustainable gardening practices. Discover more about the gardens, volunteer opportunities, academic applications and ways to stay connected.

Volunteer in the Gardens

At this time, we will not be hosting garden volunteer sessions to protect the health of the community and our employees.

The Edible Campus Gardens are available for class tours and projects. Various classes use the gardens as a living learning laboratory. Contact the Sustainable Food Initiatives Manager to host a class or project in the garden.
