We are a group of Saint Cloud State University staff, students, faculty, and Saint Cloud community members creating a unified network to envision, plan, plant, tend, and harvest food and flowers together.
The Goals of the Garden:
To create a beautiful green space for all to enjoy. To create connection between people and the land. To educate and expand knowledge about: Sustainable agriculture A variety of cultural foods and flowers Gardening processes Food preparation Natural environments and organic practices Community building To share food and ideas. To provide access to land. To preserve land, culture, and tradition.
The community garden is an outgrowth of Tracy Ore's (professor in the Sociology Department at SCSU) "Politics of Food" course, and her research on sustainable agriculture and community organizing. SCSU has set aside land next to the Women's Center (on Fifth Avenue South near Sixth Street). The vision of the garden is to foster and build bridges between the university and larger community and to create a space where people can participate in planting, growing, and harvesting our own food.
