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.
