Welcome to the Salad Bowl Garden!
Bringing the farm to the people
Located in front of the Plant and Environmental Sciences building at UC Davis
Imagine a living salad bar, stocked with a mélange of crispy bunches of lettuce and arugula, snap peas dangling on trellises and the shoulders of orange carrots peeking above the soil surface. Six large beds, laden with of fresh vegetables, intensively planted, and growing with rich compost and water. As you approach your building, the air is fresh from the abundant plants, the soil is covered with edible vegetables and flying creatures flutter about. The soil is teeming with beneficial soil microbes, the roots filter the water, and the plants transform these resources into food for your lunch. This is the Salad Bowl Garden at UC Davis.
