Independent Study

Students can earn credit through independent research and projects at the farm. Students, like Brigid Lanigan who researched biochar’s effects on growing microgreens, or Luke Stallings, who is evaluating the biofiltration capacity of freshwater clams, partner with the farm to conduct research for groundbreaking capstone projects. Bonner Leaders also have opportunities for research, such as Chris Hornsby’s larvae composting project.

Students are encouraged to contact the farm if they’re interested in environmental, biological, economic or agricultural research.
