Organic is In
Thursday, Oct. 01, 2009
In an effort to be more conscious of precious land and the food resources, many students are volunteering at the USU Student Organic Farm, a student-run organization aimed at providing educational opportunities and fresh, organic produce.
The farm is in need of volunteers to assist with soil preparation, planting, harvesting, weeding and marketing of produce. No farming experience is needed.
“We are in need of volunteers to assist with soil preparation, planting, harvesting, weeding and marketing of produce,” said Jennifer Reeve, faculty advisor and mentor to the developing farming project. “Don’t be concerned if you’ve no experience farming. Our student farm managers will introduce new volunteers to the farm and put them to work.”
Wednesday, 3:30 p.m. – till dark
Thursday, 3:30 p.m. – till dark
Saturday, 8 a.m.-2 p.m.
Potential volunteers should contact Reeve at Jennifer.Reeve@usu.edu if they would like to be included on the email list and receive weekly updates about the farm.
For those interested in supporting the farm, but unable to find the time to volunteer, the farm sells the week’s harvest at a stand outside the TSC every Wednesday from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
“I love all of it,” said Kristin Lindstrom, student farm manager. “But the best part is when we have people come, and we teach them what we know about farming and learn from them.”
The Student Organic Farm is located at 800 E. and approximately 1700 North, in Logan, Utah.
