The University of Maryland Community Learning Garden was started in 2010 as a graduate student project, but has since become a joint venture between undergraduates, graduates, faculty, and staff. Our goal is to encourage people to see green spaces in new ways and use them to their fullest capacities.
We also educate people in the community about healthy eating and where food comes from while encouraging a stronger connection with nature.
The Community Learning Garden is one of three campus food gardens, each with a special mission.
St. Mary's Garden:
Harmonizing different groups through language-learning and gardening
JFarm (Am Ha'Aretz Hillel Garden):
Building community through culture and environmental education
Community Learning Garden:
Learning and teaching about community health and sustainable agriculture
