About Us

The Edmonds College Campus Community Farm* started in March 2012, as a model for sustainable urban agriculture practices. Since then, over 12,000 volunteer hours have been served, and an estimated 21,000+ pounds of produce have been harvested. The goal of the campus community farm is to bring a diverse array of students, faculty, and staff around sustainable living practices and take advantage of an under-utilized space.

The farm boasts over 20 raised beds, a variety of perennial edible trees and shrubs, a collection of bee-loving flowers, an edible rain garden, and a hoop house. The site is also home to the Cultural Kitchen and Bee Club's Bee Garden.  The Campus Green Fund has made many of these projects possible, and continues to fund future development.

*Funded by the Edmonds College Campus Green Fund. 

Our Produce

All the food grown on the farm is donated to the Edmonds College Food Pantry, campus organizations, and events. Campus community members are invited to visit the food pantry to sample our produce. Community members participating in farm work parties are also welcome to harvest and take produce from the farm. 

Get Involved!

The farm is supported by the volunteer efforts of Students, Faculty, and Staff. Farm work parties are a great way to get involved with urban agriculture, sustainability, and the Edmonds College community. Through our affiliation with Service Learning, Campus Farm work party volunteer hours can be used to fulfill Service Learning requirements. All skill levels encouraged and welcome!

Class at the Farm!

As a learning-focused urban farm, we encourage students and faculty to utilize the farm in whatever capacity best relates to your course curriculum. The farm has served as a research, project, and practical classroom space for many courses over its history, and we hope to continue working with a variety of departments to integrate the farm into Edmonds' academic community.
