Ready to make a difference? 

Each semester, University of Alabama students help make our school gardens the best they can be through our Let’s Grow! class. Ready to dig deep into farming practice? Organic Farming may be for you. See below to find the class that’s right for you.

“I have a learned connection with the earth that I think is uncommon in today’s world. I want to eat healthily and sustainably not just because it sounds nice and pretty, but because I understand at a deep level what that entails for me and the planet as a whole.”
