Campus Recreation

Community Garden Application

Outdoor Recreation offers community garden plots for USC students, faculty and staff. There are 20 raised beds in the Carolina Community Garden at Preston Green.

Plots are awarded through an application process. You must apply as a group with a minimum of four people in each group. Applications are reviewed at the beginning of the semester as well as on a first-come, first-served basis throughout the semester.

If your group is awarded a plot, you will be given an opportunity to renew each semester for up to one calendar year.


  1. A minimum of four people are required for each plot. While more are welcome, please list those four individuals in your application.
  2. Plots are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.
  3. Applications received after the seasonal deadline will be reviewed based on available plots. Call the office at 803-777-2072 to check the current status if you are unsure.
