AGECO 197: Growing Food, Leaders, and Community

We are excited to announce a NEW Student Farm course for spring 2018! The purpose of AGECO197 is to provide training to interns who will be working with the Student Farm or with the Penn State Center Philadelphia


The interdisciplinary Sustainable Food Systems Program sees our own Penn State campus food system as a living laboratory for engagement in sustainable food and agricultural systems by strategically linking classroom education with experiential education, research and community outreach.

We grow plants, and so much more… growing minds, growing community, and growing food!


Flagship components of the SFSP include a working Student Farm, a highly active Student Farm Club, and myriad opportunities for collaborations across Penn State academics and operations.

How to get involved:

Are you interested in bringing your class to the Student Farm for a tour, workday, or class lesson? The farm is a living classroom–come on out!

  • Request a tour or volunteer day for your class
  • Invite a representative to come into your classroom
  • Assign work on the farm for class assignments
  • Develop a project for your class through a course-client collaboration with the Student Farm
