Join other students, staff, and faculty who are passionate about sustainability and work together to foster a more eco-friendly and sustainable campus community. Regardless of your skill set and interest, there are a variety of opportunities for you to get involved in!

Community Garden

Students gardening

Chapman University's community garden is located in Davis Quad and is open to all students, faculty, and staff. This program is run by Civic Engagement Initiatives. You can reserve a bed for either class or individual use, plus it is free and easy to do! They are always looking for volunteers to help with the garden's maintenance and upkeep, which is a great way to earn volunteer hours. If you have any questions regarding the community garden or would like to volunteer, please email Civic Engagement. You can also sign up to reserve a garden bed on OrgSync.

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

CSA box

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) connects our campus to local farms and growers. Every other week, boxes full of fruits and vegetables arrive at Chapman for those who subscribe to the service. The contents vary from week to week, so it's different every time you open your box! Chapman's current supplier is Tanaka Farms, located in the nearby Irvine. Sign up to join the subscribers list at Chapman or find additional information about the program from the Tanaka Farms website.
