Panther Plot

What is the Panther Plot?

The Panther Plot is UNI’s student-run garden. It was established in April 2013 as a student-led project by UNI Presidential Scholars. The focus of the group is to develop valuable gardening and leadership skills while providing fresh, locally grown produce to the university community.

What is done with the produce?

Produce grown in the Panther Plot is:

  • Sold to UNI dining services
  • Donated to the Northeast Iowa Food Bank
  • Sold on campus at the Panther Plot Produce Stand
  • Given to Panther Plot volunteers
