Dilmun Hill Student Organic Farm

Dilmun Hill Student Organic Farm We are an organic student-run farm that has been practicing sustainable agriculture on Cornell University's campus for more than a decade. Welcome to Dilmun Hill!
(3)

We are a student-run farm that has been practicing ecological agriculture on Cornell University's campus for more than a decade. Our mission is to provide students, faculty, staff and community with opportunities for experiential learning, group collaboration and research. Throughout the year we host work parties where volunteers work in the fields and experience the latest in sustainable ag practices. The student managers and steering committee members collaborate with the Organic Coordinator and Faculty Advisors to provide leadership in farm operations and disseminate information through education and outreach. We also collaborate with various organizations on campus, such as the McDaniels Nut Grove (MNG) and Cornell Orchards. This season, we are excited to receive all of our organic seed from Johnny's Selected Seeds through their Charitable Giving program. For more information about Johnny's, visit their website at http://www.johnnyseeds.com

Dilmun Hill's summer 2014 projects include:
Continuing no-till practices in the Market Garden
Expansion of growing area
Relocation of our hoop house
Bioremediation projects in areas with contaminated soil

Dilmun produce can be found at the Farmers Market on the Ag Quad every Thursday from 11AM-3PM. Interested in helping out? Volunteer work parties will be happening regularly! For more information, join our listserv ([email protected]). Hope to see you soon!

General Manager: Zoe Friedberg, Sam Hackett, Erin Kehoe, Brian Byun

Hi guys! This is Mané, class of '18, and for any graduating seniors who are interested in giving your family/mentors a special/natural thank you gift, here is an idea :) (it's being run by my family)
Opportunities at Plant Science alumna's eco-friendly body care line, ANATO ! Our company is based on the pillars of permaculture, I thought some of you might be interested. https://anatolife.com/pages/internship-opportunities
Please spread the word about the internships we offer at Cornell Botanic Gardens. Thanks!
Check out the work of Sarah Bellos '04, and her company Stony Creek Colors. Sarah managed Dilmun Hill Farm during summer 2002 and was an active volunteer throughout her time at Cornell. (I was her assistant but not nearly as knowledgeable or talented.)
Dear Dilmun Hill Student Farm, I have actually never received real butter cookies in the shape of a heart and dipped in chocolate. Not even my honey gave me such a nice thing. And I'd also like to mention the homeade sour-dough bread. Had some toasted with honey and with potato leek soup. What else is there in life? Thank you kindly, Mandy
