Farmhouse Fridays Projects

Farmhouse Fridays invites campus eaters to learn more about their food and watershed and engage in hands-on experiences from seed to plate. Farmhouse Fridays take place at the UCCS Farmhouse (FARM on campus map, http://map.uccs.edu) from 12-4pm. As part of Farmhouse Fridays, we have launched a Green Action Fund supported project, called SWELL and the Farmhouse-Local Food and Grain Literacy. This project takes place on Fridays throughout the semester, with each class focusing on a different aspect of local food or grain. This project aims to provide students the opportunity to learn through interactive hands-on experiences, while empowering them with the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to connect health and sustainability through local food, which here includes local grain as well.
