We are excited to introduce a new CEFS-supported educational farm at NC State! Led by Dr. Michelle Schroeder-Moreno, NCSU’s Agroecology Program Director, the Agroecology Education Farm (AEF) will help facilitate hands-on, inquiry-based learning in agroecology and sustainable agriculture for NCSU students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding community.
In addition, the Agroecology Education Farm has established a partnership with Green Planet Catering to provide increased educational opportunities, outreach with a culinary focus, and locally supplied produce.
“I am very excited about this facility as a student farm to promote hands-on learning about sustainable agriculture for students and also as an important resource for the surrounding community. We are also looking forward to working collaboratively with Dining Services and the Office of Sustainability at NCSU to increase education and awareness about local and sustainable foods across the university,” said Schroeder-Moreno.
Volunteer hours at the AEF are every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday from 4 pm to sunset. For more information, visit the AEF’s Facebook page, or contact Dr. Michelle Schroeder-Moreno or email@example.com.
