Community Garden (Food to Grow)
The Augsburg Community Garden is meant to give students, staff, faculty, neighbors, and community organizations an opportunity to learn and grow their own fresh produce. Rather than the Campus Kitchen as an organization attempt to grow food to provide food for free, we provide the land, tools, water, and compost to anyone in the neighborhood so that they can take ownership of their own space. We have had farmers from Minnesota, Ethiopia, Somalia, and Mexico all gardening together, and sharing their skills and examples with many others who are just beginning to learn how to garden.
To get your own space, we ask that you have a strong connection to the Cedar Riverside Community, contribute $20 for the year (scholarships available), and volunteer at least 4 hours to help maintain and improve the whole garden (not just one’s own plot). We’re able to place almost everyone who applies. To apply for the upcoming season, please complete and submit the form below:
