The UIS Campus Community Garden provides hands-on learning opportunities for UIS students, faculty and staff, as well as members of the surrounding community. The garden demonstrates our commitment to sustainability and “leadership lived.” This is an outdoor classroom where community members teach one another, share gardening tips and secrets, and build lasting relationships.
Our weekly garden worknights will be on Tuesdays from 5-6:30PM from May 11- August 17, 2021. Our weekly worknights are rain or shine, but we will cancel in the event of a severe thunderstorm.
Anyone is welcome to attend these events. Please note that masks are required in the garden, and social distancing will be enforced. Please don’t visit the garden if you are feeling unwell.
