Agriculture in education

One of Earlham’s green initiatives, Miller Farm is an engaging way for students to learn about sustainable farming and work hands-on in the dirt! This student-run, non-profit organization welcomes everyone, regardless of experience. An extra pair of hands is always appreciated.

And Miller Farm is more than just farming. Food is cooked in the kitchen or pizza oven on the farm every weekend, and a variety of events are held throughout the school year.

Miller Farm is a creative space where new ideas are always encouraged, allowing you to integrate your personal interests into your participation on the farm.
