Description

The Student Organic Farm at Oakland University gives students a unique hands-on learning opportunity. Two courses are offered in the Biological Sciences department that examine the relationships between “food, fiber, and fuel production” practices and both sustainability and community health. The farm courses are not just for students interested in biology, sustainability, nutrition or farming. These courses provide an intersection between numerous disciplines and emphasize problem-solving, teamwork and collaboration. Several major concentrations such as health care, education, business, marketing, and communications could all benefit from the hands-on training that an organic farm has to offer. http://www.oakland.edu/organic-farm
