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.

How beautiful is the SAP in the evening? We’ve been busy with the harvest of greens, planting summer crops, sowing seeds, and weeding (always). We look forward to enjoying an abundance of delicious, sustainable produce in the coming months!

Unsure how to use those big, beautiful bitter greens? Here is some inspiration! When prepared correctly chard has a gorgeous, earthy flavor that can often be overlooked. Starting June 1st you can have access to local chard and other freshly grown produce from the SAP Farmstand 🧑‍🌾
