UGArden is a student-founded teaching farm located just south of the main University of Georgia campus. Student and community volunteers help manage and provide the primary labor to grow approximately 4 acres of vegetables, fruits, shiitake mushrooms, and herbs using organic practices. 

The mission of UGArden is to build a community of students centered on a sustainable food system by:

1) teaching students to grow food using organic practices
2) sharing healthy, sustainably grown food with members of the local community who are less fortunate
3) engaging students in the local community through service learning; and
4) providing opportunities for students to learn practical skills and experiment with new ideas.
