UC Merced Community Campus Garden

Back for Spring 2023!

The Campus Garden's main goal is to help fight food insecurity on campus by providing students access to fresh produce. They provide everything from tea leaves, herbs for cooking, and fruits or veggies for UC students to enjoy. Along with the campus garden providing fresh produce and reducing food insecurity, they also offer volunteer opportunities.

Some everyday task that can happen is picking weeds, planting seeds, harvesting foods, trimming plants and helping organize the shed. No sign-up is required; feel free to walk-in and start volunteering!

As a volunteer, you can help with weeding, planting, maintaining the watering system, and overall maintenance of the garden. This semester, volunteers can also plant new grapevines and weeding the garden beds. Shifts are on Fridays from 9AM to 10:30AM on Ranchers Road, between Half Dome and Valley Terraces, at UC Merced

If you have any questions or are interested, please contact the Zero Waste Coordinator at UC Merced Sustainability, Allajah Wheatley, by emailing
