The Student Farm offers several courses each year that focus on sustainable agriculture, organic farming, and agricultural/environmental education. The Farm is also frequently used by instructors for field labs and other activities, particularly those focused on sustainable agriculture.
Any UC Davis student can enroll in these courses, and for students who are enrolled in the new, hands-on and interdisciplinary major in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems (SA&FS), each of these courses fulfills and academic requirement. Learn more about the major here.
