SLCC Community Gardens


SLCC Community Gardens are here to teach our students and staff about sustainable gardening practices and empower them to grow their own fresh produce.

We believe that all people are entitled to healthy food regardless of socioeconomic status and other personal circumstances. Increasing access to this food is key to enabling people to thrive as they reach for their dreams.

We see the gardens as an opportunity to create a community around a common interest and bring people together in a relaxing and unique space.
