The UW Farm is a 1.5 acre student-powered urban farm & educational facility located on the University of Washington’s Seattle Campus.
Our mission is to be the campus center for the practice and study of urban agriculture and sustainability, and an educational, community-oriented resource for people who want to learn about building productive and sustainable urban landscapes.
Under the leadership of faculty, the farm manager, and interns, students are mentored and guided through hands-on agriculturally-related experiences in the field and greenhouses. The results are the production of over six tons of produce for campus dining, the food pantry, and the community, a new awareness of the food system, knowledge of a farm as an agro-ecosystem, and place for innovation, research, leadership skills, access to organic fresh vegetables and the potential for a healthier lifestyle.
Where Does our Produce Go?
All our produce is grown following practices outlined according to the National Organic Program and Good Agricultural Practices food safety program. We strive to deliver the freshest produce while creating awareness of the food system for all those who volunteer as part of course work or simply to be a part of the campus farm community.
