The Loyola Student Farm is student run and is mentored by Loyola Faculty and local farmers. Interns and students have the opportunity to form a direct relationship with their food through one-on-one experiential learning in a natural setting. They participate in the farm to table experience daily, as their field work is harvested, processed, and prepared into their nourishment and health.
Through courses in ecology, biology, and sustainable agriculture, the relationship between humans and their environment is explored in depth. Just as the food grows in the field, students flourish into their new life-style, changing the way they think about food, community, and the environment.
Loyola's produce is available at the Loyola Farmers' Market! http://www.luc.edu/farmersmarket/
