The Dartmouth Organic Farm came from an idea planted by students in the late 1980s as part of a class project for an Environmental Studies Program course, ENVS 50, “Environmental Policy Formation.” Students in the 1990s nourished the idea into a fledgling organic garden that brought in its first harvest in 1996. Since then, the O Farm has grown into a hub for hands-on learning at Dartmouth. It is home to an educational working garden, faculty and student research, independent projects, labs, classes, a stunning landscape that serves as a backdrop for all social events, and an ecosystem that engages students in learning about sustainable food and energy systems.
