Urban Farm - MUSC

MUSC Urban Farm, President & Bee St., Charleston, S.C.
I have to thank Dr. Susan Johnson for including me in the invitation to tour the Medical University of S.C.'s Urban Garden. I had been hoping for an excuse to check it out. Look at this lush, green garden right in the center of town!
The MUSC Urban Farm provides a place where students, faculty, staff, and the Charleston community can come together to learn about the connection between land and food. The .5 acre Farm, located on the corner of Bee & President Street hosts workshops, seminars, volunteer workdays, and tours for local schools. Participants are educated on the value of incorporating vegetables into their diets through cooking and nutrition lessons and will experience a unique opportunity to engage in hands-on learning about sustainable urban agriculture.
