The Garden Commons, a community garden space.

The Garden Commons

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

The Garden Commons supports our food reconnection goal: reconnecting people to where food comes from while supporting and producing a sustainable food system. We strive to help reduce food insecurity within the community and our student body through produce donations to various outlets and providing hands-on learning.

The garden's harvest will benefit the Garden Commons Farm Stand, which offers fresh produce to students at no cost and to staff at a nominal cost, as well as surrounding food banks. 




Empower students to become “change agents” to support sustainable food systems and rethink how we access, cultivate and value food. 


Create a new commitment and understanding of the benefits of sustainable food systems through dynamic hands-on learning experiences.


The Garden Commons is available for classes, events, volunteer opportunities and workshops. Contact Susan Norton for information on events and volunteer requests. Reserve the Garden Commons pavilion for classes and meetings. 

Visit the Garden Commons Facebook page for announcements on events, the Farm Stand and volunteer opportunities.
