MUSC Urban Farm

MUSC Urban Farm

In keeping with our mission to improve health and maximize quality of life through education, research and patient care, MUSC has developed a half-acre of the North Garden as an educational garden with the goal of creating opportunities for our community to learn how to eat for health. The MUSC Urban Farm is designed to be a living classroom where students, faculty, staff, and the community come together to explore the connection between food and health through hands-on learning about  the many varieties of vegetables, fruit, and herbs grown in South Carolina.
The MUSC Urban Farm provides a place where students, faculty, staff, and the Charleston community can come together to learn about the connection between land and food. The .5 acre Farm, located on the corner of Bee & President Street hosts workshops, seminars, volunteer workdays, and tours for local schools. Participants are educated on the value of incorporating vegetables into their diets through cooking and nutrition lessons and will experience a unique opportunity to engage in hands-on learning about sustainable urban agriculture.

To get involved, visit our events page or contact us to find out about volunteering opportunities and be sure to visit our Facebook page to keep up with Farm happenings and how we are connecting food and health at MUSC.
