The FGCU Food Forest is a student-run botanical garden containing edible and non-edible species native to Southwest Florida. It was designed to educate our student body as well as the community about living more sustainably through gaining knowledge about the vast array of foods from all over the world that can be grown locally. So far, students have put in over 2,000 hours working on the planting beds and fence projects.
The 15-acre solar panel field produces 85% of the energy needed to operate three of our academic buildings on campus. The endless rows of solar panels tilt and rotate throughout the day “following” the sun to generate power for these academic buildings. FGCU hosts the largest solar panel field on any university campus, paving the way for greener campuses throughout the nation.
