LU Community Garden

The LU Community Garden is located between the tennis courts and the Student Health Center. At this garden, volunteers grow flowers and other plants to beautify the campus.

This is an awesome place to have lunch at the picnic table or watch a tennis match and cheer on the Cardinals.

If you would like more information on volunteering or would like to learn more about the garden, you may email Alicen Flosi, follow us on Facebook, or join us on OrgSync.

South Park Community Garden

The South Park Community Garden, located on the northwest corner of Jimmy Simmons Blvd and Vermont Street, Beaumont, TX, is a partnership between the South Park community and the Lamar community.

South Park Community Garden’s mission is to improve community health:

  • Physically by increasing accessibility of fruits and vegetables as well as providing education on nutrition and food preparation.
  • Socially by providing opportunities for fellow-ship, education, and opportunities for the disadvantaged.
  • Economically by developing a sustainable local food system.

The South Park Community Garden provides fresh healthy food for anyone, brings diverse people together, and provides education empowering the community to grow its own healthy food.

The Dining Hall donates food to be composted in the compost pile which contributes excellent soil to the gardens.
