Community garden

The Sustainable University of Redlands Farm, on campus just behind the Brockton Apartments, provides a bounty of vegetables sold to Bon Appetit and consumed in the Irvine Commons, and is home to Community Service Learning mentoring programs for the Redlands Boys & Girls Club, Big Buddies, CHAMPS and Roots & Shoots.

Now the farm is extending its service further by opening its own Campus Community Garden. Plots in the garden are available to the University community—students, staff, faculty, administrators, organizations, alumni and retirees.

• Plot size: 10 feet by 20 feet
• Rental fee: $10 (includes water and use of some tools)
• Reservations are first come, first served. Applicants subject to approval.
• Growing seasons—spring Jan. 1 to April 30; summer May 1 to Aug. 31; fall Sept. 1 to Dec. 31

For more information, contact Rory Byrne, Office of Community Service Learning, at 909-748-8838 or
