Our Mission

The MSU Community Garden mission is to strengthen the MSU community, research regional issues related to urban agriculture, and extend knowledge to cities and towns throughout the state to help promote a healthier Mississippi.

The garden’s primary functions are to:

  • create a space for students and staff to grow healthy food on campus,
  • serve as an outdoor laboratory for sustainable/healthy food courses on campus, and
  • provide a platform for research endeavors that would stretch across the university.
