The UW-Sprout Campus Garden and University Dining operations are working to incorporate sustainable food into our campus.

UW-Sprout LogoThe UW-Sprout Campus Garden is a 1/5 acre market garden for students, faculty, and staff to grow food and cultivate community. At the garden, you can plant, tend to, and harvest a wide variety of sustainably grown vegetables, fruits, and herbs.

Our staff of students and volunteers grow produce for the UW-Sprout CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program, selling produce shares to UW-Stout students and employees. We also grow food for the local food pantry.

Volunteer Opportunities

Any students, faculty, or staff can volunteer in the garden! Volunteers learn valuable skills in growing sustainable food, as well as meet new people with shared interests in gardening and local food. In exchange for their time, volunteers can receive free produce when it's available.

Volunteers do lots of different tasks like planting, weeding, mulching, watering, and harvesting veggies.

Due to COVID-19, the UW-Sprout Campus Garden is closed for Summer 2020.

Tour the Campus Garden

We'd love to give you a tour!

We welcome students, faculty, staff, classes, and community members. Due to COVID-19, there are no tours in 2020.

The UW-Sprout CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program is a partnership between CSA members and UW-Sprout Campus Garden. CSA members pay for a seasons’ worth of produce and UW-Sprout delivers shares of fresh, sustainably grown produce each week by bike.

UW-Sprout sells CSA shares to current students, faculty, and staff of UW-Stout. Each season, we accept new members.

Due to COVID-19, the UW-Sprout CSA is not operating during Summer 2020.
