UVa Student Garden
Started by a student initiative, the University of Virginia’s Community Garden hopes to be a space for both Charlottesville and the University to learn more about organic gardening. Keeping with the agricultural traditions of the University’s founder, Thomas Jefferson, the garden is a place to foster the growth of community as well as food.
The garden is recognized as a special project of the Student Council’s Environmental Sustainability Committee. This helps the garden be a recognized as a part of a student organization, which can help with receiving funding and university support.
“No occupation is so delightful as the culture of the earth, and no culture comparable to the culture of a garden.” -Thomas Jefferson
