Fields of Learning: The Student Farm Movement in North America is the first book to profile an exciting and potentially revolutionary trend in higher education: the establishment of working, on-campus farms where students with different backgrounds and majors can gain hands-on experience growing and marketing organic food. Of remarkably diverse sizes, crop and livestock varieties, management structures, and institutional settings, these programs give students an opportunity to ground classroom learning in real-world experience. Fields of Learning is a practical guide to student farm management and a compelling series of reflections on the methods and benefits of engaging college students in organic food production as a proving ground for sustainability.
