College Highlights

Let Us Farm


The U of A freight farm is located right in the Bumpers College backyard. This container, nestled behind the AFLS building, doubles as a lesson in sustainability and a source of fresh, local produce for the campus community. The two students managing this freight (one of whom is a double major in Agricultural Business and Human Nutrition and Hospitality Innovation) have harvested more than 12,700 heads of lettuce while learning about the functionality of hydroponic farming methods.
