New Urban Farm Sites at UO

EUGENE, Ore. — Good news for University of Oregon students looking to be involved with the Urban Farm Program–it’s expanding. That means 50 more students can register each term.

The program also acquired two new sites. The first is on Moss Street next to the Center for Advancement of Sustainable Living. The second urban farm is on Columbia Street in a double lot behind Agate Hall.

“We generally just get fourth-year seniors who get to register first, and we’ve been looking at ways to involve more students and having more real estate is a way to do that,” said Harper Keeler, Urban Farm Program Director.

For nearly 30 years, the class puts students to work cultivating vegetables while learning how the food system works.
