Research

Home to a wide variety of native flora and fauna, the Gardens serve the dual purpose of providing an oasis for the university and the community it serves, as well as providing a home for important research projects. Classes in disciplines ranging from environmental science to pharmacy use the Gardens to further the research enterprise at USF.

In addition, several disciplines are using the newly planted medicinal gardens in hopes of discovering new treatments for a variety of diseases.
