The inner workings of our research studio

June 1, 2010 | Eric Benson  |  Share

 In the fall of 2009, Eric Benson's senior studio class at the University of Illinois embarked on a service learning project to brand and give life to the Sustainable Student Farm that is 100% funded by student fees. The farm is designed to eventually be self-sustaining providing fruits and vegetables to one of the largest university cafeterias in the United States: Ikenberry Commons

After months of hard work, even after the class had ended, the students launched the farm's website: Here's hoping that more student-initiated sustainability projects follow!
