S.L.U.G. (Student-Led Unity Garden) is an organic, sustainable garden located on the University of Portland’s campus in North Portland. The SLUG Project was started in 2006 by a small group of dedicated UP students, and the garden was built in the spring of 2007. In addition to organic gardening, the garden aims to help build a relationship between students, their food, and the surrounding North Portland community.
This year, SLUG has organized residence hall composting programs, cosponsored Focus the Nation, and taught dozens of students and community members how to grow organic sustainable produce.
