Students for Organic United Living
SOUL Garden is NC State's on-campus student organization and garden. In November of 2019, we received confirmation from stakeholders in order to begin our relocation to NC State's Main Campus. The official home of SOUL Garden is Parents Park, located behind Fountain Dining Hall and neighboring Doak Baseball Field. We have long awaited this move in order to make the garden more accessible for students, staff and faculty.
Throughout the year, we host multiple workdays with opportunities to volunteer. Some of the tasks include planting, weeding, watering, compost transportation and maintaining garden aesthetics. Sign up for our monthly newsletter to receive more information about all things SOUL!
One of the club's greatest underlying aims is to cultivate an appreciation for and encourage a peaceful interaction with nature. Our student volunteers see immediate benefits to living in harmony with their natural environment.
We do not use any chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Some of our other sustainable practices include:
A passive solar greenhouse
Rainwater collection for irrigation
Although we are in a transition period, we are very open to students' individual projects. If you have a project you would like to make happen at the garden, tell us about it. Past projects include a pollinator garden, a speaker series, herb spiral, greenhouse, composting site.
Please contact us with your proposal through the connect page.
