Welcome to the Sustainable Agriculture Project

Who are we?

The Sustainable Agriculture Project is a physical place, and a scientific station, where students can go to research plants, the environment, human-environmental interaction, systems thinking, and community. It is also a laboratory in that it is a space where students can get their hands dirty while learning quantitative and critical thinking skills relating to soil, water, plant life, climate change, and the environment. It is also a working studio space and gallery for artists, a field site with a ready-made community of people on a small working farm perfect for sociological study. It is also a business that produces and sells food to support the activities of the SAP (although currently most food grown at the SAP is being donated to those in need).

Last week, students from the GVSU School of Engineering stopped by to test the health of the SAP’s beehives. We got to learn more about the honey bee colonies while extracting samples of bees to test. To get involved with GVSU Beekeepers, follow @gvsubeekeepers! 🐝
