The UNT Community Garden originated as a student-led project funded by the UNT We Mean Green Fund. The mission of the garden is to promote environmental education, grow food organically,and foster a community focused on a greener, healthier future for everyone.

Regardless of previous gardening experience, any current UNT student, faculty, or staff member is encouraged to become part of this growing community for collaborative learning. Our space features twenty raised gardening plots for growing organic vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers. Each plot is managed year-round by garden members who apply to care for a specific garden plot. Apply for membership today! All gardening experiences can go towards earning your Environmental Volunteerism Graduation Cord.

Members of the garden are able to maintain a plot with a group of other students. Food you grow goes directly to your home, or can be donated to the UNT Food Pantry. Our staff will supply you will all the neccesary materials to start your garden, including knowledge! 

  • Previous gardening experience is NOT necessary
  • All supplies are provided by the We Mean Green Fund and there are no fees to join!
  • Current UNT students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to apply for plot membership throughout the year. If there are no available spaces, your application will be placed next in line on the waiting list.
  • To learn more about the requirements for becoming a plot member, please read our UNT Community Garden Rules & Policies.

New plot members must attend an in-person orientation before joining a garden plot. If there is plot space available when you apply for membership, you will receive an email from staff that will invite you to RSVP for a scheduled orientation date. Please do not arrive at an orientation if the garden staff has not instructed you to do so.
