Stony Ford Research Station



Event Description

The Seed Farm is a new interdisciplinary research project that grows rare and culturally-meaningful seeds on a 3.5 acre farm. The project works with community partners to ask broad research questions related to ecological and social repair and mutualisms. The farm hosts regular Saturday workdays and other events. The farm plot is nestled amidst the 99-acre Stony Ford property, which is managed and supported by the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology. Come out to the farm and enjoy the garden and walking trails. Help with seed harvesting and processing. Learn more about the research projects happening and how you can be involved.

Shuttle Service: A ongoing shuttle service will offer a loop between the Wawa parking lot (152 Alexander Rd) and the Stony Ford Research Station. The shuttle will run from 3 - 7 pm. A schedule will be posted soon.

Parking: Parking at Stony Ford is very limited. Use of parking spaces will be limited to 45 minute slots. If you would like to drive and park at the site, you will need to make a reservation using the following Google Doc.
