In operation since 1976, the University of Oregon Urban Farm is a model for alternative urban land use where people grow food, work together, take care of the land, and build community. Throughout its history as part of the Department of Landscape Architecture, the Urban Farm has been a place and a process integrating biological, ecological, economic and social concerns.
The Urban Farm frequently receives inquiries from individuals that would like to start an urban farm program at their own institution. We are happy to share our insights and advice. Contact the director of the farm for more information.

We have volunteer hours on Saturdays from 10:30am-12:30pm.
Chances are we have an extra pitch fork and lots of work to be done!
