About the Farm

The UT Micro Farm is the University of Texas’ first student-run, on-campus farm! We are currently funded by the UT Green Fee and our organization falls under the Campus Environmental Center. Our goal is to grow food for our local community, while creating and facilitating a number of opportunities pursuing innovation, education, sustainable systems, and interdisciplinary collaboration. It is extremely important to us that we practice only organic and sustainable farming techniques. We’re growing a host of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers for UT dining halls, a campus farm stand, and a neighborhood food shelter.

To learn more about our history, see the Project Overview (Spring 2012)

Your involvement is encouraged; see our Get Involved page for more info.

Check back soon for updated resources! Until then, email microfarm@utenvironment.org with any questions, comments, ideas, and/or to discuss potential collaboration!
