Southeast Campus Sustainability : Aquaponics & Community Garden

The Garden

The Sustainability Committee sponsors several garden plots on campus that may be rented for the season by TCC classes, departments, or student clubs. These plots are used for a variety of purposes from doing research projects to growing food for the campus food bank. The garden also contains an aquaponic system. 

The garden content and projects change by the season. If you would like to join the wait list for a plot next season, please contact the committee.
