UT Concho Community Garden


Visit our new blog for the most up-to-date information and new entries! Plot owners can find all relevant links and information at the new site as well.


The UT Concho Community Garden is UT's first community garden! The garden was constructed by volunteers early Spring 2011 and began its first season March 2011.


The garden 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.



The garden consists of over 30 plots, including 24 individual plots, 3 demonstration plots, 3 plots for growing food and herbs to be utilized in UT dining halls, and 3 student organization plots. The garden also includes 5 fruit trees, including peach, gala apple (2), Asian pear, and Italian fig, as well as additional landscaped areas. Everything grown at the garden is entirely organic. 


See our start-up plan of the garden.
