FAQ

What do you produce and where does food from the Farm and Gardens go?

Our field rotations include a diversity of food, forage and cover crops. Any food produced is donated to food pantries and used for educational events, or becomes part of course work in harvest, post-harvest, processing, etc. At the Farm and Gardens, we grow a diverse selection of seasonal vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers such as lettuce, beans, kale, cucumbers, parsley, tomatoes, etc.

For a look at what is growing now, check out our Facebook and Instagram pages. Students may contribute to the Farm by becoming a member of the Gator Gardening Club. Members of this club work together with Field & Fork staff producing food, managing the farm and harvesting.

Internships offered at the Farm and Gardens provide students the opportunity to experience farm management on a day-to-day basis. Students may also participate as a volunteer. This is an excellent option for those who need volunteer hours and have an interest in gardening and farming. If you want to learn more, visit our Get Involved section.
