Campus farms come in many flavors: some are operated by a dedicated group of volunteers, others operate under departmental supervision, and many have paid farm managers and/or interns to direct day to day operations.
Join us for a conversation about how different management structures are used to achieve campus farms’ specific missions. Hear from individuals involved in student-run and staff-managed campus farms and how they’ve overcome challenges such as leadership retention and funding through the years.
Date: February 5, 2015
Time: 3-4 PM CST
