The Yale Sustainable Food Project aims to educate students about the links between food, agriculture, and the environment, creating community around the pleasure of physical work and eating well together.
We run a one-acre farm on campus, the produce from which is sold at CitySeed's Wooster Square Farmers' Market or donated to hunger relief partners. We also run a variety of educational programming designed to introduce students to the national and international conversation about food and agriculture.
This Tumblr will feature photographs and stories from the Farm, pieces written by our students, and links to news stories we think are interesting and relevant to our mission.
Starting June 20th, we will be holding volunteer workdays on Fridays and Saturdays from 9:00 am to 4:00pm.
No gardening experience is necessary; just bring a water bottle and wear weather- and work-appropriate clothing. If you are a group of more than five people, please give us a week's notice of your planned visit: call us at 203.432.2084 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For all of the prefrosh arriving on Yale’s campus for Bulldog Days today, a look at a different side of New Haven: its urban farmers and community gardeners, folks deeply invested in making the city a more liveable (and edible!) landscape.
