Training

How We Got Started

The natural farm training center began in 2006 when a group of feral pigs were trapped and fenced in to clear a patch of land on an undeveloped part of the campus that was overgrown.Today we run courses on Community Development and Sustainability & Stweardship.

Our Mission

We train at various levels, from giving brief tours to visitors to more in-depth training in courses within the College of Science and Technology. 

Our training is based on principles of asset-based community development and user-centered design. We emphasize appropriate technologies for different situations that are wanted and can be sustained by people being empowered. 

In our upper-level course, Stewardship and Sustainability, and our Internships our expectation is that students will themselves be involved in training others during their field assignments.

Our Programs

In the last few years, we have been running a farm track where students from other schools learn skills and methodologies that they can take on our reach with them.
