The Morven Kitchen Garden is where UVA students learn, lead, and connect through sustainably growing food. At MKG, students grow and tend vegetables, flowers, perennial fruits, and bees. Produce is sold through a CSA program and to UVA Dining Halls.
Learn – Educational garden opportunities include semester and summer internships, weekly workdays, and seasonal events
Lead – MKG Exec, the garden’s student leadership team, advises, promotes, and connects the garden to grounds. Exec meets weekly each semester and is open to any interested UVA student.
Connect – Opportunities to directly engage with the garden, local Charlottesville Community, and the local food system including garden workdays, garden tours, our CSA program, and events like Gazpacho in the Garden.

The Morven Kitchen Garden offers a unique CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program to UVA students, faculty, and staff and the greater UVA community. CSA shares are available from June until early August (Summer Share) and September until November (Fall Share), in which a box of fresh produce and recipe card is dropped off each week at Main Street Market or delivered to you for a fee. Sign up for our CSA or learn more!
A central focus of the Morven Kitchen Garden is to support independent student research. The garden serves as a living laboratory to explore questions surrounding farm economics, organic cultivation techniques, and place-based educational practices.
