Check out our educational resource tables on a smoke and tobacco free campus,  recycling, and the Roger’s Community Garden at UCSD (formerly the Neighborhood Community Garden).  RCG at UCSD is a student-led garden serving the UCSD and San Diego community. We are located on a quarter acre of land behind the Dance Building and La Jolla Playhouse. Our main purpose is to offer land to students, staff,  faculty, and alumni, to grow herbs, flowers, fruits and vegetables. Additionally, in pursuit of our overall mission, we are developing multiple other projects, such as composting programs, workshops on sustainable agriculture and nutrition, lectures and teach-ins on surrounding social justice issues, and an annual seminar jointly taught by RCG faculty advisors and students. As a student-led project, we strive to support the community that supports us, and give back to those who have given so much to us. We hope that through our efforts we can add a something special to our campus.
