The College Farm supports students from all disciplines in their pursuit to incorporate its resources into their academic interests. From art majors to biology majors, the farm has worked with students and faculty to develop relevant research topics that address sustainability, from food production to public art.
The farm continues to collaborate with and support faculty from all departments in their courses, labs and research. While course offerings may change from semester to semester, a growing number of Dickinson College faculty have developed ways to integrate issues relating to food sustainability and the farm into their courses.
Students and faculty have utilized the land and resources of the farm for course projects such as art installations, documenting the interactions between farm wildlife and farm ecology, the effects of vermicompost extracts on plant health plus stream health data collection, integrated pest management strategies and developing educational curricula for K-12 visitors.
