Welcome!

Have you ever dreamed of planting your own food before picking the fresh and healthy produce of your harvest with your own hands in a land transformed by a community of apprentice gardeners? If yes, you have come to the right place. The UT Concho Community Garden seeks to provide you the micro-level opportunity to re-establish the natural link between you and the food you ingest. 

The project, set up in Spring of 2011 is an ongoing collaboration between the UT Campus Environmental Center, the UT Office of Sustainability, and the UT Division of Housing and Food Service, with great support from UT Landscaping Services.
