Volunteer Opportunities

UVA Student Garden


The UVA Student Garden is a community garden located near O’Hill on the corner of McCormick and Alderman Road. If you’re interested in learning more about gardening, helping tend to the beds, or bringing home fresh veggies that you helped harvest, the garden is for you!

There is no need to sign-up, just come and volunteer! Workday activities will vary and may include tasks such as spreading compost from Black Bear Composting, planting seeds, harvesting veggies, and watering with reused rainwater from the roof of the astronomy building. For more information, visit
