Membership and Participation

Roger's Community Garden is open to all staff and students on the UCSD campus as well as to surrounding community members. There are no forms or fees required in order to be a member of the RCG crew. If you frequent Roger's Community Garden, especially during our Sunday hours, then you are a part of the RCG Community!

RCG is an open space, but we encourage community engagement and collaboration when it comes to gardening maintenance and activities. In order to have an efficient and organized space for growing food, we encourage our community members to join us during our Sunday hours as well as to join our Discord server for inquiries and discussion on the affairs of RCG. 

The garden grounds are open to the public 24/7, including access to the gardening beds, orchard, and compost area. Tools and equipment are locked away for security purposes and only available during our Sunday hours, 10am-12pm.

Volunteers at RCG are encouraged to come during our Sunday hours. Visit here for more information.

Guidelines for harvesting food at RCG are listed below. 

Planting and Harvesting Guidelines

The best way to get involved is to join us during our maintenance hours. Ask questions and talk with fellow RCG volunteers to decide what seeds we purchase and where to sow them. There are a few restrictions listed below.

Large harvests of annual crops or tree fruit shall be distributed to food recovery organizations on campus. Volunteers are free to pick produce for personal consumption at anytime, though we encourage mindfulness to avoid food waste.

All seeds until recently were to be stored in the greenhouse, though they have been permanently moved to the shed for better preservation. If you'd like to inquire about what seeds we have on hand, join us during our maintenance hours.
