Student Led Unity Garden Project

SLUG (Student-Led Unity Garden) is an organic, sustainable garden located on the University of Portland's campus in North Portland. The SLUG Project was started in 2006 by a small group of dedicated UP students, and the garden was built in the spring of 2007. In addition to providing organic fruits, veggies, herbs & flowers, the garden aims to help build a relationship between students, their food, the environment and the surrounding N Portland community.

SLUG has organized residence hall composting programs, cosponsored Focus the Nation, and taught dozens of students and community members how to grow organic sustainable produce.
