The History of the Community Garden Project

The idea of a community garden is an outgrowth of Tracy Ore's (professor in the Sociology Department at SCSU) "Politics of Food" course, and her research on sustainable agriculture and community organizing. SCSU has set aside land next to the Women's Center (on Fifth Avenue South near Sixth Street) and has dedicated some funds to cover the costs of tools and other start-up needs. Although the garden is connected to the SCSU, the vision is to use the garden to foster and build bridges between the university and larger community and to create a space where people can participate in planting, growing, and harvesting our own food.
