The Community Learning Garden (CLG) is a living classroom that educates visitors on the “importance of environmental stewardship, agricultural sustainability, physical activity and eating a balanced diet,” as well as issues surrounding community, public, and environmental health. The goal of those who manage the CLG is to encourage others to utilize green spaces to their fullest potential in innovative ways.The Community Learning Garden was founded in 2010 as the Public Health Garden, as a graduate student sustainability fund project and grew to become the work of students, faculty, and staff. The garden can be found between the Eppley Recreation Center and the School of Public Health at the University of Maryland.
