Filed under: Plots available spring 2011

The KU Student Farm is now offering plots and learning  opportunities for students, faculty and staff interested in growing their own food. Plots are located next to the Lawrence Municipal Airport and Prairie Moon Waldorf School, on the grounds of the KU Native Medicinal Plant Research Garden. Currently, fewer than thirty plots are available and first come, first serve.

The first meeting for the student farm will be Tuesday, March 8, at 7 p.m. in the lobby of the Kansas Union, and we will begin greenhouse work mid-March. Not an expert gardener? No problem. The student farm is an educational tool for individuals who want to learn how to grow food and learn sustainable gardening practices. We will have featured guest speakers who will educate the group on gardening practices and techniques, as well as regular work days during the season to work in the greenhouse and at the farm.

To apply for a plot, click on the link below, print and fill out the application and bring it to the meeting. Please visit the facebook page for more information.
