Seminole Organic Garden

Learn the ins and outs of gardening! Growing your own food using sustainable methods lowers your carbon footprint significantly, and you get to eat healthy, organic produce.

 

What we're all about.

We want to prove that agriculture can be sustainable. We use only organic seeds and fertilizers and maintain our food forest which contains a number of native plants that all aid in the preservation of local biodiversity.

 

How you can help!

Students, faculty and staff can get involved by coming to our bi-weekly workdays!

When: Every Monday 11AM - 1PM and Every Thursday 4PM - 6PM
Where: Between the FSU Circus and Band Practice Field
Why: At the garden, students and organizations can learn how to grow their own food and find a sanctuary away from their busy academic lives. Learning to grow fresh, organic produce is a skill set students, faculty, and staff can carry with them into the future.
 

What to Expect: Seek out the Garden Manager, Louis Castillo. He will set you up with seeds, gardening materials and show you the ropes. Bring a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated!
