Student Farm

In Fall 2008, a new OSU group "Students for Food Sovereignty" was formed on campus with the mission to "strengthen the movement toward sustainable agriculture, food sovereignty, biodiversity, and agricultural diversity through education and action on campus and in the community." Students in the group saw the establishment of a student run farm as a practical, hands-on approach to educating leaders in such a movement. By becoming a visible and well-known project at OSU, the farm would also serve to raise awareness about food and agriculture issues and increase involvement among all students throughout the campus.
