Community Garden

The Georgia Tech Community Garden is open to all students, regardless of background or knowledge!

Workdays are held every other Saturday during the Fall and Spring semesters. Remember to bring a pair of work gloves (if you have them) and a water bottle! Please contact our Community Garden Director, Eli Winterscheidt, with any questions you have.



SOS currently has a few ongoing projects. See below for information about the project and contact information for the project lead!

Urban Agriculture at the Kendeda Building

Project Lead: Erica Pareizs

The Urban Agriculture project works with the Kendeda Building staff to take care of its rooftop garden! Workdays are scheduled weekly. Members may participate in tasks such as planting, watering, and pruning the plants!


Bird-Safe Glass Project

Project Leads: Shivani Potdar and Kaitlyn Tran

This project aims to install bird-safe glass on Georgia Tech's buildings to reduce the number of bird collisions caused by the glass. Our members also are advocating for the Lights Out Initiative. This project involves data collection, reducing light pollution, and calling attention to energy waste in conversations with Facilities Management and GT Administration. 


CultiVote (Environmental Voter Project)

Project Lead: Mark Putman

CultiVote is an on-going initiative to mobilize young and first-time voters to the polls to make changes to environmental policy! The project aims to combat voter disillusionment and regularly performs outreach through tabling and flyers. 


Permaculture Project

Project Lead: Kavya Jade

The Permaculture project aims to start a Permaculture course at Georgia Tech that includes certification. The purpose is to educate students on sustainable agriculture, designed similar to natural ecosystems. 


Tech Trash Control (+ Greek Waste Diversion)

Project Leads: Luke Peden and Grayson Stuart

The Trash Control project collects data to be used for planning for better placement of trash and recycling bins. The group also regularly picks up litter on and around campus! This project also works with Facilities Management and GT Recycling.



We will have bi-weekly general meetings for members to get updates on projects, the garden, and upcoming events! There will also be guest speaker presentations and fun activities. Our general meetings are held every other Tuesday, from 11 to 12 PM in the Instructional Center. Please see our Google Calendar for more information!

SOS regularly hosts socials for members to get to know each other, fun DIY arts and crafts, and more! We also regularly collaborate with GT Scouts to perform invasive species removals at the Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design.
