About The Joy of Local Foods 

Participants in this Miami Bound experience will explore several sources of local foods including the Oxford Farmer's Market and the Miami Farm. There is no farming experience necessary, but you must be ready to get your hands dirty. We'll spend some time learning about and helping at the farm. Most of all, be ready to meet 24 other students, a few upper-class EcoReps, and get familiar with the campus.

Participants will:

  • meet and have close interactions with other students 
  • learn about the work at the Miami Farm
  • learn about and meet vendors at the Oxford Farmer's Market
  • become familiar with campus
  • learn about the moon Coop 

Program cost: $150

  • This fee will cover the double occupancy room for overnight accommodations.
