Located on West Samford Avenue, The Auburn University Community Garden is a touchstone for sustainable eating practices in the Auburn-Opelika area. Operated by Tiger Dining, they purpose their land for multiple uses. The Garden hosts faculty, students, and community members alike who want to participate in growing their own food. Some plots are also used to grow crops that are sold to local restaurants. Alongside these efforts, the garden devotes 20 of their plots (which totals roughly 12,000 square feet) to grow food that they donate to either Campus Kitchens—an on-campus organization working towards alleviating food insecurity in our area—or to the East Alabama Food Bank.
