Q&A

DEAR NEW FARM:
I am looking at the feasibility of organic farms on urban University campuses. Do you have specific background, contacts, etc., that might be useful?

Thanks,
Allie Silverman

 

DEAR ALLIE:
We've done two stories on student farms (Farming for credit and Fertile Minds) so far and plan to do more. These first two, though, along with our Directory of Student Farms should provide you with some good contacts.

We also have plans to build and facilitate a student farm discussion chat room, as well as discussion room where academics promoting organic agriculture programs can go to share their ideas and challenges. These rooms and more will debut very soon when our TALK section has a much needed shot of organic adrenaline. So stay tune.
