UGArden seeks to promote the social, environmental, and nutritional benefits of sustainable gardening through the creation of a student-run community garden.


The mission of UGArden is to build a community of students centered on a sustainable food system. The goals of UGArden are to: teach students to grow food using organic practices; share healthy, sustainably grown food with members of the local community who are less fortunate; engage students in the local community through service learning; and provide opportunities to learn sustainability skills and experiment with new ideas.

Get Involved

UGArden is supported by a wonderful combination of student volunteers, UGArden Club members, interns, Farm Manager, Americorps Volunteers, Master Gardeners and faculty. The continued success and growth of UGArden is the result of the dedication and hard work of these people. The people that make up the UGArden community give freely of their time and energy. Without them, UGArden is just a field.

UGArden offers many possibilities for students and faculty to visit and learn about sustainable food production. We offer for-credit classes, UGA Student Club sponsored events, organized volunteer opportunities, tours and individual visits. UGAarden also participates in Experience UGA and hosts numerous K-12 tours.
