Help us grow!
The Class of 2018 voted to support the Student Farm through an endowment to grow and sustain the program for years to come, but we need your help to make this vision a reality. Our goal is to raise $5,000 by the end of the semester, toward the Student Farm endowment. Endowed support for the Student Farm will enable us to engage more Penn State students with their own campus and communities’ food system.
The interdisciplinary Sustainable Food Systems Program views our own Penn State campus food system as a living laboratory for engagement in sustainable food and agricultural systems. We link classroom education with experiential learning, student-led research and community outreach.
We grow plants, and so much more… growing minds, growing community, and growing food!
