History

"The Urban Farm, in operation since 1976, is used as an applied research facility (e.g. to study bee populations) and as an outdoor classroom to teach organic gardening (through Landscape Architecture). It is one of th emany academic programs beyond the Environmental Studies Program that address environmental issues in design, community planning, business, law, the sciences, and literature. These equate to hundreds of classes."
