The Office of Sustainability maintains three food production sites on the Fairfax campus: the Innovation Food Forest, the Potomac Heights Vegetable Garden, and the Presidents Park Hydroponic Greenhouse. The Greenhouse and Gardens Program hosts hundreds of volunteers & dozens of interns every year, and it's available for all volunteers and visitors!
Our Greenhouse & Gardens program is a free resource for fresh produce and hands-on experiences in sustainable agriculture. Purchase fresh produce and plants propagated in our Presidents Park Hydroponic Greenhouse at our Mason Marketplace store.
COVID-19 Update: We are hosting volunteer shifts in-person & virtually.
All in-person volunteers are required to wear a mask, practice social distancing, and comply with Mason's Safe Return to Campus policies.
Start volunteering: create an account via our Sustainability Volunteer Portal and sign up for shifts on the live calendar.
- You'll need to create an account with your GMU email (or personal email if you're not a student, faculty, or staff member).
