Edible Campus UNC creates working landscapes across the UNC Chapel Hill campus to facilitate student engagement in topics of food and agriculture sustainability.
Edible Campus has converted eleven garden beds across campus to incorporate edible, medicinal and pollinator friendly plants. We maintain these “satellite beds” with the help of students in the residence halls and allied organizations. All produce grown in these beds are free to pick by passersby!
In April 2017, we added to our palette a central Edible Campus Garden, located behind Davis Library. This garden serves as a hub of food, social justice, and community-building activity on campus. The produce grown in this garden will be allocated to UNC student organization that are addressing food system issues in their work.
Come check out our gardens on your way to class, and grab a snack!
