Food Accessibility and Resilience at Miami Club

Students prepare dishes for the 2016 FARM Club harvest dinner.

The student-run Food Accessibility and Resilience at Miami (FARM) Club plans social gatherings, community outreach, and educational opportunities centered around sustainable agriculture, local food, and healthy eating.

Founded by students in 2016, FARM Club is based in the Institute for Food and draws members from all majors across the university. Members have volunteered at Oxford's Harvest Moon Festival and hosted dinners to learn how to cook vegetables grown on the Institute for Food Farm. Members also are involved in volunteering on the farm, doing everything from planting seeds to irrigating crops to helping sell the produce to local vendors.

"[FARM Club has] evolved into a way for more people to have access to the farm," says Amy Harmon, FARM Club president for 2016-17. "It links the Institute for Food with the student body outside of class."
