The 30-acre UCSC Farm and 3-acre Alan Chadwick Garden produce an abundance of organically grown produce, herbs and flowers. Crops grown by Farm and Garden staff and members of the Apprenticeship training course are available at several outlets-
- The Market Cart starts in late May or early June and runs through late October, on Tuesdays and Fridays from 12 noon - 6 pm. The Market Cart is located at the base of the UCSC campus (corner of Bay & High Streets).
- The Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) project offers shareholders a box of fresh organic produce each week. Shareholders are also welcome to harvest from the CSA herb and flower garden at the UCSC Farm.
- The UCSC Farm is also a member of the Monterey Bay Organic Farmers Consortium, and sells produce directly to campus dining halls as part of the campus's Farm to College program.
Flowers from the UCSC Farm and Chadwick Garden can be purchased for weddings and other events. If you're interested in purchasing flowers, please email Christof Bernau, or call 831.459-3375.
Organically grown annual and perennial plants from the UCSC Farm & Garden are available at the spring and fall plant sales. The Spring Plant Sale takes place the first weekend of May; the Fall Plant Sale takes place in early September (date variable). Please check the Calendar of Events for dates and times of upcoming sales.
Proceeds from produce, flower and plant sales support the UCSC Farm & Garden facilities, and the Center's Apprenticeship training course in organic farming and gardening.
