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, student’s 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 and the community, a new awareness of the food system and knowledge of a farm as an agro-ecosystem and place for innovation, research, leadership skills, access to organic fresh vegetables and a potential for a healthier lifestyle.
