College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS) horticulture students have already begun growing season preparations on "Cornercopia" the CFANS student-lead organic farm on the University's St. Paul campus. Cornercopia provides the opportunity for horticulture students to get hands-on learning experience right on campus. Not only are students studying and growing herbs and vegetables, they are also responsible for the business-end of the farm--marketing and selling the produce. The students working on this project have actually put together their own Cornercopia Blog.
The organic farm has relocated this year to the northeast section of the St. Paul campus. The vegetables that are grown on this organic farm will be sold at the U of M Farmer's Market on Wednesdays from July to October.
