F.H. King Students for Sustainable Agriculture: Market Viability Proposal
F.H. King Students for Sustainable Agriculture has been a student organization on the UW-Madison campus since 1979. Since being granted funds from the Associated Students of Madison (ASM), they expanded their farming operations and student outreach. They currently operate a 1.5 acre farm near Eagle Heights Community Gardens on the west side of campus. During the summer of 2008, F.H. King donated over $15,000 worth of produce to the Madison student body on Library Mall. A team of students investigated the feasibility of establishing a student farm. They determine the market viability on the UW-Madison campus of a sustainable, student-managed farm, develop a comparative analysis of other student farms and how the farm has benefited their respective campus and communities and analyzed current UW administrators to determine who the report should be presented to.
