Muhlenberg

Posted 5/15/2014 2:06pm by Lindsey Parks.

In early April, when the season's first seedlings were just starting to peek out of the soil in the greenhouse, The Seed Farm welcomed Muhlenberg College Environmental Science students to the farm for a lesson and tour. 

Students in greenhouse

The students spent time with Farm Steward Emma Cunniff, who just launched Kneehigh Farm on our site this spring. Fresh out of college herself, Emma is in a unique position to talk with students about the challenges and opportunities that young farmers face. 

Students in field

They also toured the still-quiet fields with Farm Manager/Educator Becca Munro. Students had a chance to ask questions and discuss with Becca the principles of sustainable farming, including the importance of cover crops, pest management and soil health.

"We talk pretty extensively about agriculture in class - so seeing it first hand, locally, was very exciting for them," said professor Karen Tuerk. "The students were captivated. 'Best trip ever!' was expressed by more than one."

 

The Seed Farm welcomes groups of students to the farm at any time of year. More information about scheduling a tour for your students can be found here
