Community gardens offer a focal point for community involvement, and foster a sense of community ownership and stewardship. They offer educational opportunists for young generation to learn about organic gardening and the benefits of locally grown food. The organic Community Garden at UT Arlington, built in collaboration with the City of Arlington has become a public green space for families, community members, and garden enthusiasts. Members of the community can adopt one of the 78 plots in the half-acre garden. As part of the $35 annual plot use agreement gardeners donate at least half of their produce to Mission Arlington, the garden’s designated food bank program.
The garden is located at 406 Summit Ave., just south of the Sweet Center at the corner of UTA Boulevard and Summit Avenue and is one of many projects on campus that demonstrate the University’s commitment to environmental stewardship and natural resource conservation, and presents amazing opportunities for open space preservation, community service learning, conservation, food production, and recycling and renewal of our most basic natural resources—plants.
