POMONA COLLEGE ORGANIC FARM
ABOUT THE SITE
In 1998, students began planting fruit trees in an abandoned, empty field hidden on Pomona College's campus. After a few years, and despite many practical and political challenges, the Farm began to grow. Today, the Farm occupies about 1.1 acres of land and is host to over 200 fruit trees, many chickens, a few beehives, the campus composting system, the Earth Dome, a greenhouse, dozens of plots, and over 50 production-oriented crop rows (see here for more information about the facilities). Hundreds of students and community members come together each year to interact and to learn to take care of the the plant and animal life abundant at the Farm.
