Student Farm Club

The Student Farm Club is a great way for Penn State students to get involved with the Sustainable Food Systems Program and the Student Farm! Established Fall 2015, Student Farm Club reaches far beyond the production field. Our club was formed to bring together anyone and everyone interested in topics related to the food system sustainability, including food insecurity, food waste, agricultural production, culinary skills and more!

Join us!

Club meetings are held on Thursdays at 6pm in 215 Armsby Building. Learn about sustainable food systems, grow fresh food for our campus community, and join a group of engaged students rallied around the local foods movement!
