Members come from all over the university. We have
undergraduate and graduate members, art majors, soil science majors,
agriculture majors and environmental science majors. Itís a diverse
group joined by a desire to effect change and grow healthy, organic
food right here on campus.
This year the farm supported an eleven member
CSA, sold produce at an on campus farmstand, and supplied the campus
foodservice with carrots & potatoes.
What does it
take to join?
Membership dues are $10 yearly. We have scheduled meetings and work
parties out at the farm. On certain days during the fall semester
students operate a farm stand on campus. Members are expected to put
in their share of work to take home a share of the harvest.
