The Guelph Urban Organic Farm (GCUOF) is a 1 hectare learning and research facility established by the Ontario Agricultural College< within the Department of Plant Agriculture at the University of Guelph.
Students entering into the Bachelor of Science in Agriculture program share a common first year of core courses. During their first year, students are encouraged to discuss their future plans with staff and faculty to help them decide on one of the four majors, Organic Agriculture being one of them.
The Organic Agriculture major offers students an integrated approach to learning in the rapidly expanding world of organic agriculture. Courses encompass food production, food security, organic processing and marketing, environmental health and rural community sustainability.
Volunteers are welcome to come and gain hands-on experience.
The farm welcomes grade school children to learn about biodiversity, sustainability and food chain in a program called Garden2Table.
