Student farm serves community

From the seeds to the final sale, University of Minnesota students are taking a grassroots approach to raising awareness of organic farming. Cornercopia Student Organic Farm started as the unsanctioned sharing of graduate student garden plots in 2004 and is now a nearly self-sustaining, certified organic farm in the middle of the University’s St. Paul campus. Produce from the farm is sold at local farmers markets and to University organizations.
