Organic Community Garden

We all want to eat fresh, local produce…

But for UM students who want to go one step further and grow their own vegetables, flowers, herbs, and spices, the UM Organic Community Garden provides that opportunity.  Each member gets his or her own plot.  Seeds, plants, soil amendments, and hand tools are available.  And don’t be dissuaded by a lack of experience; first-timers and seasoned gardeners alike are all welcome.

UM Organic Community Garden is located just past the UM baseball field on County Road 10/Middle Street.

Produce grown in the summer harvest donation garden is donated to Shelby Emergency Assistance for local families in need.
