The EFFS Club is a multidisciplinary group of undergraduate and graduate students striving to cultivate sustainable, local, food and community. As an organization, we create opportunities for students to participate in sustainable agriculture and food systems activities. These activities have included conferences, organized events on campus such as guest speakers and workshops, and the promotion and support of small farms and businesses that actively practice or teach about sustainable agriculture.

The Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems (SAFS) undergraduate minor fosters active learning about agriculture and food systems. Agriculture, the science of farming, provides us with the food and fibers that we need. The concept of sustainable agriculture and food systems is characterized by the long-term viability of the environmental, social and economic aspects of the system. Using real-world examples and the active learning of students and faculty, SAFS explores contemporary food system issues from the community to the international scale. Read more on the SAFS website.
