Getting Involved

Academic Experiences at the Farm - If you want to develop experiential learning experiences for your class, please get in touch with us - iufarm@indiana.edu to schedule a visit and meeting.

Working @ the Farm - The Campus Farm periodically hires hourly, student employees. This is most common in the spring, summer, and fall. If you are interested, please reach out with resume and cover letter to iufarm@indiana.edu.

Volunteering @ the Farm

If you want to volunteer at the Farm, join us Friday and Saturday afternoons (12:00-4:00), through December 15. These are open volunteer hours- so grab a friend and head to the IU Campus Farm. If you need to fulfill service learning hours- consider the Farm as your volunteer location. Email adiersin@iu.edu with queries.

Student Farm Advisory Team - will act as a student portion of the farm advisory board. The intention behind this group will represent student interest as it relates to food, production, and the Farm. The team also has potential to expand into a campus farm-centered student organization as interest in the farm expands. This group's work is coordinated by the Campus Garden and Farm Intern through the IU Office of Sustainability. Please contact iufarm@indiana.edu if you are interested in the Student Farm Advisory Team.
