Community Garden



About the Garden

The A.S. Community Garden is an organic garden on a quarter acre of land. It was created to provide students with access to healthy food and a space for service learning.

The garden was established in 2014 as a result of student-led initiative. The garden is an extension of the Cesar E. Chavez Community Action Center.

Campus Community Garden Address: 
372 E. San Salvador St.
San Jose, CA 95112
**The garden is located near the intersection of 8th and East San Salvador, directly across the street from the Dining Commons.


Volunteer Work Days

The Garden exists to provide the community with an opportunity to participate in food justice: providing a place for student initiative, cooperation and cultural exchange using the growing of food as an exploration of community involvement.

Student drop-in hours: Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:00am - 2:00pm.

We encourage students to bring a water bottle and a grocery bag or container to help transport their food.
