The Campus Kitchen at Baylor University's Community Garden

Baylor Garden 4

The Campus Kitchen at Baylor University’s (CKBU) Community Garden is a collaboration between CKBU and Baylor’s graduate school, which seeks to combat hunger and food injustice issues through community engagement, holistic education, and growing fresh food. Every week student garden managers harvest fresh produce that is integrated into CKBU meals. Students become engaged with the garden through weekly volunteering opportunities and events including MLK Day of Service, community garden days, and monthly events in the Garden. There are also several opportunities for gardening, health, and sustainability education initiatives which are hosted in the garden. We also donate produce to Meals & Wheels and the Shepherd's Heart Food Pantry.
