Campus Garden

We are excited to announce that UW-Platteville, led by the Green Campus Project student organization and the Office of Sustainability, is starting our first ever “edible campus garden.”  The garden, approximately 30’ x 50’ will be located on campus proper and contain a mix of vegetables, fruits, and flowers raised using organic methods.

Right now, the garden is just a vision in our mind's eye, but in the coming months, it will become a reality thanks to help from PACCE, SUFAC, Campus Facilities & Planning, Green Campus Project, Peter Flanary's Advanced Sculpture class, UW-Platteville student Courtney Alexander, and many others.

get involved

Position Announcement: We are hiring a student to help maintain the garden for 20 hours / week this summer, $8 / hour. No garden experience necessary. Applications are due by 5 p.m. Friday April 4th. Download the job annoucement.

Work Days: We are seeking groups to help us build a fence and garden shed (we will have the materials, plans, and coordinators on-site). No experience necessary, just show up ready to swing a hammer, hold a post in place, and possibly sweat a bit. See dates and sign up here.
