Welcome to the Outback!
The Outback, a joint program of the Associated Students and Fairhaven College, is a 5 acre farm and wetland restoration site. The purpose of the Outback OELP is to coordinate a wide range of opportunities for students to learn about, develop and implement sustainable land use practices. These opportunities include personal and collaborative events and projects involving habitat restoration, organic gardening, green building, academic partnerships, independent study projects (ISPs), workshops, lectures and classes. The OELP also provides job-related skill building and community networking opportunities for students. These include serving on the Outback Governing Council, volunteering, and participating in work-study and salaried employment.
The Outback Farm loves volunteers and visitors! Be sure to stop by our volunteer work parties, every Monday from 8am-10am and 2:30pm-4:30pm, Thursday 3pm-5pm and Friday mornings from 9am-noon. Learn about growing food, work in the dirt, and take home delicious vegetables. All are welcome!
The Outback Farm is located just south of the Fairhaven Residences between 25th St. and South College Way.
