The Farm at Stonehill College has been recognized in a June 1 story by “USA Today College.”
The Farm is a 1.5-acre organic farm that grows and distributes produce to local organizations to feed the needy and local families who lack access to affordable fresh fruits and vegetables. It was founded by the Mission Division at Stonehill in 2011. The Farm distributes produce to about 400 people through three organizations.
The “USA Today College” story discussed First Lady Michelle Obama’s new book, “American Grown,” and her effort to educate college students about the importance of locally grown food to the environment and health. The story highlighted The Farm and garden projects at Northwestern University and Smith College as efforts similar to Mrs. Obama’s.
