Sustainable Carolina is the collaboration of campus organizations, departments and individuals that are leading the transformation to create a sustainable campus. It does not represent any single department or initiative, yet is the cumulative efforts of all the students, staff, faculty, and community members of Carolina.

The Carolina Community Farm and Garden (CCFG) at the Green Quad at the University of South Carolina has a campus garden where students are welcome to grown their own food. Due to the diverse cultures in the University of South Carolina and students from different countries, many cultures are represented in the food grown and the gardening methods used. This is only one of the many reasons why the University of South Carolina has no limits!
