WSU’s Organic Farm offers students the opportunity to earn university credit while working on an operational Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm. The farm produces more than 30 different vegetable crops as well as fruit, flowers and herbs from a 24-week harvest season.
The WSU Eggert Family Organic Farm is located on Animal Science Road, just north of the grizzly bear observation area on Terre View Drive. A map to the farm is available at http://css.wsu.edu/organicfarm/map-to-the-farm/.
