Support Your TIGUrS Urban Garden

The TIGUrS Urban Garden, located behind the Elma Roane fieldhouse, not only nurtures organically grown vegetables and herbs free to all, but also provides students, faculty, staff and the UofM community a wellness-focused greenspace featuring amenities that facilitate exercise, socialization, quiet study, cookout gatherings, and a meditative experience in nature, right here on campus. Always in need of replacement tools, composted soil, mulch, plants, seed, and many other elements that enhance and expand your garden and it's greenspace, your support will help keep the garden green, tasty, interesting, and fun. 

If you have questions pertaining to this ongoing project, would like to volunteer, or wish to discuss support that extends beyond this platform, feel free to email Art Johnson, Project Coordinator, at or call (901) 678-4201. See you in the garden!
