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. 

Concho’s mission: To serve as vibrant resource for the community by promoting the practices of: community gardening, sustainable agriculture, & environmental cooperation. We seek to provide an open space for the forging of a community that grows with one another, the exploration of important environmental topics, and connecting to nature through food.

How to become part of the Concho Community:


If you want to work on your plot, the garden is always open!

If you’d like to contribute energy to the garden, our weekly volunteer days for this semester (FALL 2015, updated 11/7/15*) are

  • Tuesdays 3:30pm-5:30pm*
  • Saturdays 10am-12pm
