RCG in a Nutshell
Functioning underneath the University of California - San Diego Bioregional Center for Sustainability Science, Planning and Design, Roger's Community Garden is home to a variety of student-lead projects designed to help reduce food waste and carbon emissions while simultaneously producing organic, locally-grown produce for the UCSD Faculty Club and the Triton Food Pantry.
Arm passionate students with the tools necessary to make their sustainability-oriented projects a reality.

Realizing the problems caused by a rapidly increasing global population, University of California President Janet Napolitano has set up two system-wide goals:
- Global Food Initiative - develop solutions to sustainably and nutritiously feed a world population expected to reach eight billion by 2025.
- Carbon Neutral Initiative - make the University of California system carbon-neutral by 2025.
Several of the students working for Roger's Community Garden are UCOP Fellows, meaning they receive a scholarship for their work through the UCOP, not RCG or UCSD.
