Farm Forum aims to connect the Wesleyan community with the food we eat through education about sustainable agriculture.
Participants will learn growing practices through hands-on work on Long Lane Organic Farm, as well as gain a firm practical and theoretical grounding for further work in or involving agriculture. Topics in this semester’s forum include farm organization, the anatomy of plants, local Connecticut climate and geography, biodynamics, economic and social roles of farms on college campuses, food policy and justice, poultry husbandry, and permaculture. Look forward to getting dirty, fresh air, interesting discussions, wholesome food, and field trips!
