About the Garden
What We Planted
The staff garden includes herbs, vegetables, native Californian plants, as well as plants used by the Ohlone.
Where is the Garden?
The staff community garden is located outside of Li Ka Shing, Mulford, Morgan and Genetics & Plant Biology.
We will meet 12-1pm on the following dates, generally the 4th Thursday of each month unless otherwise specified:
- Thu, January 25
- Thu, February 22

To stay up to date on upcoming volunteer days please add the Staff Garden Volunteer calendar to your Google calendar here.
Note: Volunteers days may potentially be rescheduled due to unfavorable weather or scheduling conflicts.
The garden includes rosemary, parsley, basil, oregano, and thyme. Using herbs in cooking is a great way to add a boost of flavor and beneficial polyphenols!

Special Volunteer Day
Thu, June 22, 2023
Our June Volunteer day will be extra special, so it's a great opportunity to check out the garden and get involved! Stretch break, nutritious snacks, summer planting, and a raffle.
Be Well in the Garden
Tue, June 14, 2022
Gather in the staff garden with your colleagues to explore our community garden. Take a grounding stretch break, watch a simple cooking demo using ingredients from the garden (and taste the recipe!), and learn about ergonomics in the context of gardening. Registration is required to be entered into the raffle, but feel free to drop in without registering. Show up anytime within the 11:30am-1:30pm time frame, but our programming will take place between 12-1pm. Help us go green by bringing your own water bottle.
