Eligibility

Groups

The minimum group size for a garden plot assignment is four people. The following groups are eligible to apply for a UNLV Community Garden plot:

Registered Student Organizations (RSO)

Any student group that has met the guidelines set forth for registration by the Student Involvement and Activities office. 

UNLV Community Garden RSO

A maximum of four (4) plots are reserved annually for use by members of the UNLV Community Garden RSO. This enables individuals who are otherwise unable to organize the minimum of four people to secure a unique plot to still participate in the Community Garden. 

Departments and Academic Units

Must be affiliated with UNLV; priority is given to groups utilizing garden plots for academic research. 

Teaching and Learning Groups

UNLV classes using the gardens for academic experiential learning and/or community engagement.

You are welcome to have a mix of staff and students for a raised bed. Plots will be assigned for a calendar year. Renewing groups meeting requirements may be able to maintain a consistent plot assignment year to year.

Individuals

Faculty, staff, and students who would like to participate individually may join the Rebel Roots Garden Club. This is a RSO that is run separately from the UNLV Campus Community Garden. To join, visit the Involvement Center page for the Rebel Roots Garden Club and log in with your ACE account.

How to Apply

Applications are accepted at the beginning of every fall semester or until beds are filled. Garden members gain access to communal composters, our free seed library, and various garden tools and supplies.

Before applying, please read the UNLV Campus Community Garden Policies.
