Students

From hosting a food drive for the Alan and Cathy Hitchcock Pantry to helping harvest at the Farm and Gardens, we have many ways students can become involved with the Field & Fork Program. If you have any questions after reading the information below, please email dinalieb@ufl.edu.

The Farm and the Gardens are a great place to learn the art and science of growing your own food, and we donate the food for those in need as part of our efforts. Students can either help out one time or become regular members of our team. Regular members receive a share of our harvest. We welcome new volunteers and members, and encourage you to join us in the fields. To volunteer, please click here:

Internships       

Do you need to complete an internship or research for your major? Are you looking for a way to gain more experience in farming or food systems? Searching for a work study opportunity? The Field & Fork Program offers many opportunities to gain professional, hands-on experience for any major. If you are interested in an internship, please visit the internships page for more information.

Clubs

Many clubs participate with our program by helping in the Gardens, hosting food drives or volunteering with the Alan and Cathy Hitchcock Pantry. Some groups work with us to host or collaborate on events and programs, such as the Culinary Arts Student Union through the annual Fresh Off the Farm event. The Gator Gardening Club and the Organic and Sustainable Agriculture Club coordinate with our staff at the Student Gardens to help manage the production system from beginning to end – planting, nurturing and harvesting all crops.

If your club would like to host a food drive for the Pantry, visit the Alan and Cathy Hitchcock Pantry site. If you would like to participate with the Gardens, please contact Dina Liebowitz.
