The UT/Concho Community Garden has just been completed being built in its basic form as of March 2011. The garden came about through the efforts of the UT Campus Environmental Center, the largest student environmental organization on campus, with support from the UT Office of Sustainability and the UT Division of Housing and Food Service. The garden consists of 15+ individual plots, 3 plots for growing food for UT dining halls, 3 demonstration plots, and 3 plots for UT student/staff organizations. We also have 6 fruit trees planted at the garden, including peach, plum, Asian pear, 2 gala apples, and Italian fig.
We hope to generate an ample supply of produce for individual consumption, UT dining halls, a partner local food shelter, and in the future, to supply an on-campus farmer’s market. We also hope that the garden will become a vibrant resource to our campus and city communities where participants can learn and share knowledge about gardening and food production, gain awareness of the many issues surrounding food, society, and the environment, propose and pursue interesting and progressive projects, and have fun at free classes and events.
