The Student Farm was founded by students in 1977 and now encompasses the Student Farm’s Market Garden, Ecological Garden, Flower Project, as well as faculty-mentored field research opportunities, giving students an avenue for hands on learning about sustainable agriculture and practices. Educational opportunities take place through student internships, volunteer positions, farm tours, workshops, elementary school field trips, and tens of formal classes in Colleges of Agriculture and Environmental Science, Engineering, and Letters and Sciences. The Market Garden currently has over 100 members in its community supported agriculture program (CSA) receiving seasonal, certified organic produce weekly. The Student Farm is a program of the Agricultural Sustainability Institute (ASI), promoting social, economic, and environmental sustainability in agriculture.
