The Community Garden of UT Arlington is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between UT Arlington and the City of Arlington. Organizers say the project has strengthened the University’s bonds with the surrounding community while encouraging healthy, more sustainable food options.
Please support the City of Arlington’s and University’s commitment to sustainability, and preserving green space, by adopting a plot or becoming a volunteer to help with harvesting efforts and other opportunities. The garden is located at 406 Summit Ave., just south of the Sweet Center at the corner of UTA Boulevard and Summit Avenue.
The half-acre garden benefits from the UT Arlington compost site and a rainwater harvesting system. A portion of harvest is donated to a local food bank. The garden is a combined effort of the UT Arlington Office of Sustainability and the Arlington Parks and Recreation Department.
The cost of a plot is $25 per calendar year. For more information, call 817-459-5484.
