Growing Food, Leaders and Community on the Student Farm at Penn State

 

The Student Farm, established as a one-acre educational farm pilot program in 2016, has engaged thousands of students and community members in learning about food systems, agriculture, and sustainability. The farm is now actively expanding to three and a half acres, and establishing infrastructure for four-season growing and education. This talk will provide an overview of the history and future plans, with a focus on the student leadership, engagement, and individual and collective agency that are the heart of the program.
