We are a community on the UC Davis campus where students work to create, maintain and explore sustainable food systems. At the farm, students grow in many ways, learning from seasoned field-based educators, from their peers and from themselves. They come to understand sustainability through the soils, crops, climate and community in which they work. In the process, they gain the systems-based thinking and doing skills needed to make a positive difference in today’s world.
The Student Farm is home to several distinct programs that help students dig into farming and gardening and learn principles of agricultural science, and that focus on garden-based learning for youth:
We offer several avenues for students to learn and explore at the Student Farm. Most students participate through internships, volunteer positions, and formal courses. These opportunities are available in various spaces and programs at the farm, including the Market Garden, Ecological Garden, equipment shop, and vineyard. The Student Farm is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive learning environment. Students with a wide variety of backgrounds and interests are welcome and encouraged to become involved.
If you would like to pursue interning or volunteering at the Student Farm, please come take a tour of the farm and fill our our volunteer and internship interest form as first steps. If you have any additional questions, please e-mail Intern Coordinator Laura Reynolds at firstname.lastname@example.org
