The UW Farm
The UW Farm is a campus center for the practice and study of urban agriculture and sustainability. It is an educational, community-oriented resource for people who want to learn about building productive and sustainable urban landscapes.
- Community – The UW Farm will foster a diverse, intergenerational, and interdisciplinary community centered on campus, but extending out to the city of Seattle and beyond. Experiential education at the UW farm will help develop future leaders in urban agriculture and sustainable communities.
- Connections – The UW Farm will reconnect the campus and greater community to the sources of their food by embedding innovative systems of urban agriculture, and raise awareness about the environmental impacts of sourcing methods. The farm will lead by example and inspire people to make healthier and more sustainable food choices.
- Sustainability – The UW Farm will improve the current campus food system by growing sustainably produced local food while reducing the UW‟s carbon footprint.
