Welcome to YOUR garden!
TIGUrS Urban Garden
(Tigers Initiative for Gardens in Urban Settings)
Sharing with Students and Community Simple, Sustainable Agriculture through Organic Urban Gardening.
GROW & EAT FREE ORGANIC FOODS - EARN VALUED VOLUNTEER HOURS - STUDY IN NATURE'S SOLITUDE
Annually funded by student Green Fees, the TIGUrS Urban Garden shares with students, volunteers, campus staff, and the community the benefits and techniques that make for a healthy gardening and green space experience. Since the summer of 2009, the award winning* TIGUrS Urban Garden, located on the University of Memphis Main Campus next to the Elma Roane Field House, has served as an ever-evolving model for organic, sustainability-focused gardening within the confines of restrictive urban conditions. TIGUrS has proven that environmentally responsible food production, urban beautification, and stress-reducing greenspace are well within the reach of the urban communities.
We encourage your participation as a green volunteer to help further sustainable practices on our campus while gaining skills that follow you forth into whatever community you call home.
