UW-Sprout Service Mark2

Our Story

The UW-Sprout Campus Garden was established as a small pilot garden in 2014.  In Spring 2015, we expanded the growing area to nearly 1/5 an acre.  We hired a student garden manager and recruited a staff of students and volunteers.  And we planted veggies, herbs, and berries, and built a hoop house.  Then we started a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) to sell the produce to UW-Stout employees.

The Sustainability Office oversees UW-Sprout.

Mission 

The mission of UW-Sprout is to empower students to grow through a sustainable food production system, to cultivate ecological and personal health, and to host active participation in uniting the campus community.

Location

We're located at 214 4th St. W. in Menomonie.  Just a block west of Red Cedar Hall, on North Campus.
