The Market Garden Project at the Macoskey Center is a demonstration organically-managed mini farm (roughly 1 acre), run by SRU students. We use no chemical pesticides, herbicides, or non-organic fertilizers in the growing of our produce.
Our goals are:
To teach and learn about what it means to have a sustainable food system, from farm soil to dinner table. To promote ecologically sound, socially just, and economically viable food production systems. To provide people with healthy food at a fair value. To impart eaters with the knowledge necessary to make informed food decisions. To provide practical hands-on agricultural experiences for SRU students.
The Macoskey Center at SRU was created in 1990 to promote a shift at SRU and in the local community towards a regenerative partnership with ecological systems. The Center is located on 83 acres of the university campus and enacts it's mission in three ways: education about sustainability through events, workshops and programs; physical demonstration of sustainable technologies and systems; and supporting sustainability-focused academic initiatives and research.
Slippery Rock Farmers' Market at Rock Falls Park on Saturdays, 9am-12pm from May through October.
