The Garden Commons

The Garden Commons is Arizona State University’s community urban garden space located on the Polytechnic campus.

As part of the University Sustainability Practices goals, the Garden Commons aims to eliminate food insecurity among ASU community members by growing and harvesting local, organic produce. 

The Polytechnic campus Farm Stand and surrounding food banks will benefit from the gardens harvest.


The Garden Commons is only available for use through classes, special events and volunteer opportunities. 

Contact Susan Norton for information on events and volunteer requests.
