If you’ve always wanted to have your own garden, but don’t necessarily have the outdoor space for it, we may have the perfect solution. You can garden at the Community Garden at Auburn University. We’ll tell you how!
About The Community Garden
Now is the time to start your growing season at the Community Garden at Auburn University. Plots are currently available for rental for the year. The season officially got underway last month. This year, an annual plot rental lasts through February 10, 2024.
Plots come in varying sizes, including raised beds. Pricing is based on the size and whether or not you are a student. Find out more about the plot rentals here. And, don’t forget to read through the FAQs for information on plot management and gardening standards.
Not only can you garden at the Community Garden at Auburn University, you can learn about gardening too. The Community Garden hosts “Community Day” events once a month.
Other garden perks
Besides renting a plot or learning about gardening, you can also give back by volunteering at the Community Garden. The garden hosts regular volunteer events, which are generally announced on Facebook.
You can create your own volunteer event as a group or with your organization. In addition, you can book a private garden tour for your community organization, club or group too.
