Watch: UCSB Edible Campus Program

The Department of Public Worms has been partnering with UCSB Sustainability and the AS Food Bank to work towards combating food insecurity on campus. We’re the worker bees of the project – tending the gardens and farm space from seed to fruit, and of course we’re paying close attention to our soil amendments!

The Edible Campus Program aims to address local food insecurity by repurposing underutilized spaces on UCSB’s campus for food production, turning waste into food, and engaging students as growers and producers.
Co-led by the AS Department of Public Worms, AS Food Bank, and UCSB Sustainability Programs, this project will empower the campus community, especially students, to be responsible stewards and leaders of our food system. We will train students in practices that address social, economic, and environmental aspects of sustainability and help them to reclaim their personal connection to the land and their food.
