Growing Your Own Groceries



The Sustainable Agriculture Program sponsored by the Master of Environmental and Sustainability Studies Graduate Program introduces our new 'Growing Your Own Groceries' initiative! We want to guide you through easy-to-cook meals that incorporate the College of Charleston's Urban Gardens and local produce. We believe cooking can and should be doable and afforable, and the Sustainable Agriculture Program is here is help lead the way! 


Growing Your Own Groceries Blog

As part of this initiative, we've created a blog in efforts to share our passion for gardening and cooking in greater detail. With food security and food justice in mind, we want to spread joy and help empower our student community through the power of Urban Agriculture! 

Head to the blog to check out what our gardeners have been cooking! 


Garden Meal Mondays

Garden Meal Mondays is a social media campaign that the Sustainable Agricutlure Program added to the Growing Your Own Groceries initiative to guide students through easy-to-cook meals using produce from the gardens. The Garden Meal Mondays will be posted to the @cofc_studentgarden Instagram every Monday, and the full recipe will be posted on our blog.  


Some meals we have cooked using garden produce include:

Garden Pizza



Chickpea Patties



Dorm Friendly Gormet Ramen



Mushroom "Crab" Cakes



Dorm Friendly Tuna Salad
