Pacific Lutheran University and the Community Garden

The PLU Community Garden is a completely student, faculty and community run vegetable garden dedicated to providing fresh, local produce to members of the Parkland community. Currently the Garden annually donates nearly two tons of carrots, tomatoes, lettuce, broccoli, squash, onions, kale, and many other varieties of vegetables and herbs to the Trinity Lutheran Food Pantry as well as homeless shelters in the area . The Garden sometimes provides the PLU Dining and Culinary Services with hand-picked local herbs for use in the University Center.
