Edible Garden

During the summer and early fall, come by to see our Edible Garden, led by the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Green Campus Project student organization.

Details

Approximately 30’ by 50’, the Edible Garden is located between McGregor and Royce Halls and is planted with a mix of organically grown vegetables, fruits, and flowers raised using a variety of different gardening methods.

This garden became a reality thanks to help from:

  • The Pioneer Academic Center for Community Engagement (PACCE)
  • The Segregated University Fee Allocation Committee (SUFAC)
  • Campus Facilities and Planning
  • Green Campus Project
  • Peter Flanary's Advanced Sculpture class
  • UW-Platteville student Courtney Alexander
  • Many others

Can you take produce?

When plants are ready, the Land Stewardship Crew harvests, weighs, and places produce at the kiosk, located at the garden's east end, by Royce Hall. The produce is free for the taking. 

Please do not pick fruit and vegetables out of the garden. 

However, you are welcome to take produce from edible mini-gardens, planted with a variety of vegetables, located around campus.

Get Involved

Work nights take place throughout the growing season, and the Green Campus Project meets during the academic year from 6 p.m.–7 p.m. in 225 Boebel Hall.
