IIT Magazine Online Exclusive: U Farm IIT

The official growing season may be over, but on a hardscrabble patch of land between the Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority house and the Triangle fraternity house—where even grass has a tough time growing—a lush and fertile project showcasing a variety of green life made its campus debut this spring.

With its roots in a student initiative through the IIT chapter of Engineers for a Sustainable World to establish a campus community garden, U Farm IIT has germinated into an Interprofessional Projects (IPRO) Program course. Headed by Rodger Cooley, adjunct professor of landscape architecture, the project has formed partnerships with several on-campus and external groups.
