There are many people involved in the Acadia Community Farm helping to make each year a success.  In addition to the many campus and community volunteers and plotholders who cultivate and maintain the garden each year there is also an Advisory Committee consisting of students, staff, faculty and community members that oversees the operation and activities of the farm from year to year. In keeping with the tradition of the farm as a student focused initiative, day to day activities are managed in-season (May to October) by the Acadia Farm Student Coordinator.

The Acadia Community Farm began in the spring of 2008 with the vision of providing local, organic produce to the dining hall at Acadia University, while also serving as a community garden. The Farm has grown to become an educational community centre for the exchange of knowledge surrounding gardening, food, and sustainable agriculture. Explore the site to find out more or stop by the Farm for a visit!
