Edible Campus UNC is a program of the North Carolina Botanical Garden that creates working landscapes across UNC-Chapel Hill to facilitate campus community engagement in topics of food and agriculture sustainability.
We have a quarter-acre production garden in the heart of campus located directly behind Davis Library, as well as eight satellite garden sites spread throughout campus. These gardens are filled with vegetables, fruits, herbs, and a variety of pollinator friendly perennials and annuals. The produce is free for anyone in the community to forage. Please do so responsibly. There are harvesting guidelines posted in every location. While the main garden is more of a traditional community garden style production space where we can hold workshops and community events, the satellite gardens highlight an alternative approach to landscaping in public, high traffic areas. We hope all the gardens serve as living classrooms and help connect students with nature and their food system.
