Augustana Garden

Garden at AU

A group of Augustana University students are working together to tackle food insecurity and promote diversity on campus and in Sioux Falls. The Augustana Garden, located on West 28th Street, is a community food collaborative working towards becoming a food redistribution center. The garden donates produce to various minority owned and sustainable restaurants located in Sioux Falls.

The goal is to create a community of like minded individuals and knit together a strong system of food production and distribution while building relationships on campus and throughout Sioux Falls.

Sustainability House

A small group of students plan to live in the house located next to the Augustana garden. This sustainability theme house will conduct multiple projects throughout the year, including (but not limited to) working on the Augustana Garden, creating a native prairie garden located next to the house, creating a handbook on turning an urban garden into a learning opportunity and providing an outdoor classroom for groups of students and community members to learn, interact or relax in a natural environment. Augustana hopes students and community members will realize the importance of understanding the environmental footprint each individual has and the choices we can make to reduce this impact.

Augustana's goal is to one day become a carbon neutral home, setting an example for other households and campuses to follow suit. Each step leads in the right direction of this goal.
