Members of the Vinecology group help care for this vineyard which provides students and members hands-on organic grape growing experience.
Since its inception in 1977, the Student Farm has served the UC Davis students and faculty, farmers, gardeners, school children and many others. Its unique program centers around three principles:
1. A focus on sustainable agriculture principles and practices,
2. An emphasis on in-field, experiential learning,
3. The encouragement of student initiative, creativity and exploration.
The Student Farm offers a wide range of opportunities for students to learn about and explore the many aspects of sustainable agriculture. These opportunities include internships, formal courses and research projects.
