Welcome to UIUC Class of 2020 and welcome back everyone else!
The Sustainable Student Farm is excited about this next school year. We are currently in full swing squarely in the middle of our big harvest season! We have been bringing batches of between 1000 lbs and 1500 lbs of tomatoes to Florida Avenue Residence Hall to be processed in the Dining Halls, along with a wide variety of other vegetables being brought to all the different Dining Halls to be made fresh for students every week! We have had a great crew of student workers this year and are very pleased to welcome Stefan Johnsrud to the crew as the assistant manager, who brings an amazing knowledge set to the farm.
If you are curious about the SSF there are a few ways you can interact with us!!!
