Started in February, 2009, the Arboretum organic community garden has grown into a major feature of the Arboretum program. The garden has become an especially important part of our volunteer program, hosting thousands of volunteer hours per year. Volunteers are the key to our success, because we could not operate such a successful garden without them. We are especially happy that our garden produce goes to help students in need through the Knights Helping Knights Pantry. The pantry provides UCF students in need with basic needs including food, clothing, and personal hygiene items. Finally, our garden is open to everyone in the UCF and Orlando community, so come come get your hands dirty and learn about growing food!
