UNT Community Garden

Get Involved!

We need summer gardeners!
Previous gardening experience is NOT necessary, and your plot ownership will extend into the school year!

  • To apply for partial ownership of a plot, send your completed Participation Contract and Plot Application (Found at the bottom of this page) to CommunityGarden@unt.edu. Designate yourself as an "individual student" when asked what organization you are a part of.
  • UNT Student Organizations, Groups of 5+ students, and Departments are encouraged to apply for plot ownership throughout the year! If there are no available plots, the application will be placed next in line on the waiting list. 
  • If you have any questions that are not answered in the Participation Contract and Plot Application, please email CommunityGarden@unt.edu.

Garden Workdays:
Open for anyone to attend, garden workdays are opportunities for community service and learning about gardening methods from expert guest speakers. Email CommunityGarden@unt.edu to receive updates about what will be happening at the upcoming workdays. Workdays are typically held on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month. 

 

About the UNT Community Garden

The UNT Community Garden is a space where UNT students, faculty, and staff can organically grow food, become educated on sustainability, and foster connections and relationships that will benefit our community. 

The UNT Community Garden is a place for all students, regardless of gardening knowledge or background.  Seeds, tools, water, and gardening supplies are provided for FREE for gardeners. The garden is intended to be a place for all to gather, garden, learn, and socialize. 

The Garden came about through a student led proposal presented to the We Mean Green Fund Committee in 2015. It is located in by Legends Hall, behind the Rec Center, and features raised garden beds, composting, and native landscaping for pollinators. Future plans for the garden include fruit trees!
