Sustainable Agriculture at Sewanee

Want to learn more about agriculture and the environment? The Farm Club aims to make sustainability visible and accessible on campus and in the community through farming-related events that facilitate wholesome, back-to-the-roots interactions between students, farmers, and the earth. Join in with the Farm Club to tour the greenhouses, check out the honeybee yard, and visit the goats.
