Sprouting from a student thesis in 2005, the Hollins Community Garden continues to engage students and faculty in creating a unique place for education and inspiration. The eco-friendly production of vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers brings a sense of accomplishment and responsibility that grows into environmental awareness and commitment to something larger. As a gathering place for study, poetry and music, or simply a solitary retreat in the hammock, the community garden is a creative space for growing food and cultivating minds.

The Hollins Community Garden is behind the lower stables on Hollins University campus, beyond the tennis courts and student parking (a.k.a. Outer Siberia), and off of Keystone Lane, past the horse barn and beyond the greenhouse. (See green arrow in map below).
