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:

  • Student Farm internships (Apply today )
  • For-credit internships
  • Coursework
  • Student-led research
  • Club membership or leadership
  • Volunteer
  • Sign up your group for a tour
