Plots Available in SLU's Organic Teaching Garden

There is no fee to adopt a garden bed in SLU's teaching garden, which grows organic products such as leafy vegetables, legumes and herbs.

The Saint Louis University Department of Nutrition and Dietetics will offer a limited number of garden beds in the organic urban teaching garden.

There is no fee for plot adoption. In order to remain a member, the grower must attend an orientation meeting, attend a garden education program each growing season and contribute 30 minutes of labor per month for maintenance of common areas. More rules and terms and conditions can be found on the Garden Plot Agreement.

There are three growing periods for the organic garden: spring, summer and fall. Gardeners who have utilized the space in the past and kept the plot in good standing will be available for renewal.

Some examples of organic products that have been grown in the past:

Spring/Fall
Kale
Lettuce
Carrots
Bush beans

Cucumbers

Turnips
Okra
