Student Organic Farm

Cultivating knowledge and human capacity in organic and sustainable agriculture for students, farmers and educators. The SOF provides a highly valued living laboratory and learning community for experiential education for RISE Students and those seeking the minor in Environmental & Sustainability Studies (ESS). RISE students have initiated projects at the SOF, including free-range chickens, apiculture for pollination and honey production, and swine husbandry integrated with crop production. These projects are now self-sustaining and continue to provide experiential learning for RISE/ESS students. RISE students can participate as volunteers at the Student Organic Farm and become contributing members of several of the ongoing projects.
