Welcome to Roger’s Urban Farmlab (RUF)
A community garden, research facility, and so much more. Founded by students in 2008, Roger’s Urban Farmlab has two goals. First, to arm passionate students with the tools necessary to make their sustainability-oriented projects a reality. And second, to provide a public access sanctuary from the increasingly industrialized world around us.
Here at Roger’s we redefine “community garden”. You will find the integration of ground breaking technology with traditional farming and gardening methods giving rise to truly sustainable 21st Century community garden along with the educational resources to spread our message to the masses.
Since our creation, we have expanded our garden, installed irrigation pipelines, and have offered our garden plots to be rented by anyone who does not have a community garden in their area. We also donate our extra produce to the Triton Food pantry and the triton Food Recovery Network, to give back to UCSD and combat student hunger at the university.
Whether you randomly stumbled upon our little tour, or heard about it through the grapevine, once again, welcome! You are in for one heck of tour.
