The Garden Club

The Garden Club at USF St. Petersburg campus is a student led organization which focuses on the practices of urban gardening as well as permaculture. We employ cultivation techniques that promote sustainability among the student body. In our permaculture setting we stress the importance of establishing healthy soil through proper compost and the nurturing Florida native flora/fauna.

We believe that gardens on our campus have the unique opportunity to create micro-scale food systems that address student food insecurity; offering spaces for experiential education; facilitating interdisciplinary research; increasing food system literacy and expanding opportunities to interact with land and food.
