Carolina Community Garden

Raised garden plots are available for groups of students, faculty and staff interested in helping tend the Carolina Community Garden in Preston College Quad.

Applying for a Plot

There are 20 raised beds in the Carolina Community Garden at Preston Green. Plots are awarded to groups of four or more, or individuals on a first-come, first-served basis.


When to Apply

Garden bed applications occur for fall, spring, and summer. You can apply for a Fall 2021 garden bed here


Who can tend to a plot?

We require a minimum of 4 people assigned to each group plot. While more are welcome, at least 4 must be listed. This year, we are offering individual half beds to gardeners. An individual cannot apply for both a group bed and an individual half bed. Please note that the number of individual half beds is limited.



If you are awarded a plot, you may renew each semester by completing an application.


Application Status

If you're curious about the status of your application, call the Leadership and Service Center at 803-777-7130 or contact the current Garden Manager, Dynasty Samuel, directly at if you have any question about garden plot availability.
