The Campus Community Garden (CCG) is now open! Contact Prof. Sam Wortman ( to reserve your plot today! Garden plots are available to all University of Illinois students on a first-come, first-served basis. 

The CCG is located at the University of Illinois Fruit Research Farm near the corner of Windsor and Lincoln Ave. in Urbana (just north of the Sustainable Student Farm and Woody Perennial Polyculture Research Site). 

Individual garden plots are 16 sq. ft. and include regular drip irrigation. Choose from compost-based raised beds, soil-based raised beds, or direct soil garden plots. Gardeners are free to plant the crop(s) of their choice and can submit seed requests to Prof. Wortman.

This project aims to increase local food production and consumption and is generously funded by the Student Sustainability Committee.
