Yale Wiki had a snafu with the web host a while back, and it was down for quiiiite a while.

Curious about What Happened? Or who runs the wiki?

You'll probably notice some things that are out of date. Help fix it?

Have a NetID? Then you already have a YaleWiki editor account :)

The Yale Farm is located at 345 Edwards Street (just east of Divinity Hill, or a block north of Sterling Chem Lab) and is operated by the Yale Sustainable Food Project.

ToDo

  • Expand history section.
  • Find info on the end-of-year pig roast work day event.

History

The Farm project was begun in May 2003, growing out of an abandoned corner of Farnam Gardens and a desire for a student-led, hands-on, sustainable agriculture movement. It was the first such project led by undergraduates to be launched on a U.S. college campus.

Work Days

The Yale Farm invites students, faculty, and members of the New Haven community to volunteer at the Farm on special designated workdays. These are typically Sundays, Tuesdays, and Fridays during the academic year (excluding Fall and Spring breaks), from 1:00-5:00 pm. Students who volunteer on Fridays are frequently rewarded with farm-fresh, homemade pizza made on-site in the Farm's old-style brick pizza oven. Pizza is served at 5:00, at the end of the work day.

Harvest Pre-orientation Program

Employment Opportunities

Several internships are available for students to coordinate Farm activities during the summer months. Other jobs are available during the academic year. Additionally, undergraduate leaders are needed for the Harvest Pre-orientation Program in mid-August.
