Eco Hub
800 W. Campbell Road, Richardson, Texas 75080-3021

Please register for this event via Engage UTD. Please ensure that you've selected the correct date for participation. 

The UT Dallas Eco Hub is a half-acre microfarm that grows food for food insecure Comets. We rely on volunteers like you to assist with the day-to-day maintenance of the farm. Volunteers can be expected to perform basic gardening tasks such as weeding, watering, harvesting, planting, and laying mulch. At some workdays, there will be an educational component on basic gardening topics such as seasonal planting, composting, harvesting, fruit tree care, and more. 

Please wear closed-toe shoes and dress for the weather. We work in heat and cold, but will cancel in the case of extreme conditions. It is strongly recommended that you bring a snack and a large, filled water bottle. There is no potable water and there are no bathrooms at the Eco Hub. Please plan accordingly. 

Please park on campus and walk to the Eco Hub, as there is limited parking at the Eco Hub. More information about transportation options can be found on the Eco Hub website linked above. 

Persons with disabilities may submit a request for accommodations to participate in this event at UT Dallas' ADA website. You may also call (972) 883-5331 for assistance or send an email to ADACoordinator@utdallas.edu. All requests should be received no later than 10 business days prior to the event.
