Student Farm

Contact: Erika Hansen ( or Rachel Corrigan (

Development, implementation and upkeep of a student-run farm on an acre plot near Smithfield Plantation. After a very successful growing season, we need manpower and motivation to keep the garden going strong.

Volunteers?: Summer volunteers are needed to work on the farm during all or part of the summer. Volunteers are also needed during the fall and spring semesters for upkeep and planning.

Community Meals

Contact: Erica Wood (

The Community Meal will focus on collecting unused food from local restaurants and businesses to prepare and serve for our community. These events occur monthly.

Volunteers?: We need volunteers to help solicit and collect foodstuffs. Also, we’ll need chefs, servers, and others to help on meal day.

On Campus Market

Contact: Catherine Goggins (

The On Campus market provides an opportunity for Blacksburg Farmers Market vendors to set up on the Squires GLC Plaza and engage students. Great opportunity to support local growers and eat delicious food!
