Terp Farm Harvest Festival

UMD’s Department of Dining Services, College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (AGNR) and Office of Sustainability partnered to create “Terp Farm” a sustainable farming operation located just 15 miles from the College Park campus. Terp Farm offers four-season vegetable production used in selected dining halls and on the Green Tidings mobile dining food truck, as well as providing produce to food-insecure members of the campus and College Park communities. The project celebrated the completion of it's first year of operation with a harvest festival to which all of the campus was invited.
