Urban garden

Chris Carr, the garden coordinator leads a workshop in the USC urban garden

The USC Urban Garden was established in the Spring of 2010 as a partnership between the USC Office of Sustainability and the non-profit organization, Urban Farming. Today the garden provides a learning opportunity and a fresh source of vegetables for students, faculty, staff and our community neighbors. Neither pesticides nor chemical fertilizer are used to maintain the garden or aquaponics system. Classes and student groups are welcome and encouraged to come to the garden for workshops and events. To schedule a group visit or event, contact Chris Carr, Student Garden coordinator at carrc@usc.edu.

Want to get dirty? The garden is maintained and harvested regularly by volunteers that come to the scheduled working and learning sessions.

Open Garden hours are:

  • Thursday 3:00-5:00pm
  • Friday 2:00-5:00pm

To volunteer, Chris Carr, Student Garden coordinator at carrc@usc.edu.
