Lobo Gardens is envisioned as a learning laboratory project that would be planned, managed, planted, and harvested to benefit organizations who provide food to the state’s families in need. Used as an interdisciplinary and multi-institutional effort, Lobo Gardens will eventually involve numerous departments and schools on north and main UNM campus as well as other university partners. The garden may also serve as a learning site for younger school students (K-12) and an opportunity to participate in mentoring and pipeline experiences with university students.

Telehealth Garden

 The gardeners at the Telehealth Garden site decided to build raised beds because of the poor soil quality. Photos of the beds will be posted next week. They are now completed. Planting has not yet begun due to lack of soil. But is right around the corner!

TELEHEALTH Garden beginning of semester!

The Telehealth site has since completed construction on raised beds and is about to start planting spring crops. The members of this site decided to build raised beds in order to provide more nutrient soil for their plants and create a wheelchair accessible garden.

End of Semester Update

Hello fellow gardeners,

The jack frost is nipping at the greens, and we at the Lobo Gardens are putting up our hats for the winter break. But not to fear, we will be back next month to make sure that the seeds we have sown will grow into leafy greens.

Just a quick update...

Come spring time two new sites for Lobo Gardens will be added to our growing list of garden sites. The first site will be at the new Lobo Village by The Pit. The second site will be on UNM's North Campus. Both sites are in the planning phases for how they will look and we are honored to see our efforts coming into fruition in a short amount of time.


If you would like to become involved in the Lobo Gardens you can either register for the Lobo Gardens course (a.k.a. Social Movements in America) through American Studies. Or you can join 'Seeds of Rebellion' a student run organization.

And  now, more pictures of the Lobo Garden RED Site.

Have a safe and wonderful winter break, from all of us at the Lobo Gardens!
