Get Invloved


How to Get Involved in the MUSC Urban Farm

Work and Learn Sessions are held each week and provide opportunities for participants to engage in hands-on learning about sustainable urban agriculture including stewardship, planting, and harvesting.  Topics vary each week, generally relate to the current season and related tasks.

Participants are asked to sign a waiver and a photo release form, available at the Farm. Please bring water, sunscreen and wear closed toe shoes. Bring a plastic bag and take home some fresh produce in return for your work efforts when crops are ready for harvest. Open to all MUSC employees, students, and the general public. Check out our calendar for more information and to register for a session.

Lunch and Learns

Bring your lunch and join us for a brief gardening or nutrition presentation while enjoying an opportunity to socialize and meet new friends under the oak tree. Preregistration is not required for lunch and learns and these sessions are open to MUSC employees, students, families, and the general public. View the calendar (Calendar link) for our current Lunch and Learn schedule
