Free comprehensive walking tours of the Dickinson College Farm
Join us Saturday, June 2 for free tours of the College Farm between 10 a.m. and noon. The comprehensive walking tours begin every half-hour and last approximately 45 minutes. Appropriate footwear is recommended. The farm is located at 553 Park Drive, Boiling Springs. Participants in the tours will learn about the farm’s vegetable production, livestock operations and renewable energy projects, including solar, biogas and biodiesel production. The farm is an 80-acre living laboratory that is certified organic with more than 15 acres of vegetable production ground and 18 acres of animal pasture. It supports the academic interests of students and faculty, promotes renewable energy and builds a greater awareness about how food is generated using techniques that help sustain the natural ecosystem.
