Campus Community Garden

Students working in the gardentomatoes

The Campus Community Garden here at Southern Connecticut State University has been growing every year since it's beginning almost four years ago. Located down the steps beside Davis Hall the garden consists of a large fenced in garden space, an enclosed vented greenhouse, a storage shed, and ample room for raised beds surrounding the garden.

Any department, club, or individual can speak to the Office of Sustainability to claim a spot in the garden to grow their own vegetables, fruit, herbs, or flowers! As always, help is welcomed to maintain, water, and harvest the garden.

Did you know?

The garden is all organic! No pesticides or synthetic fertilizers are used.

Thank you's from the community

Most of the garden's fruits, vegetables and herbs get donated to local soup kitchens such as the Community Dining Room in Branford and St. Ann's Soup Kitchen in Hamden.

"Thank you so much for your very kind donations to the much needed CDR."
