Why more and more CMU alumni are including small-scale agriculture in their life-paths, during and after school.
This year the CMU Farm celebrates its 10th anniversary season. And while the challenges of COVID-19 have reshaped things for the farm, from celebration plans to daily operations of their CSA project, Autumn's work is largely unaltered: harvest season proceeds apace, and the steward Metanoia Farmers' collective are already forming their plans for next season.

On Earth Day 2020, CMU officially became Climate Smart certified. Involved in this certification was a commitment to strategize various initiatives in which CMU would reduce greenhouse gas emissions on campus and become a more environmentally sustainable community. CMU's newest initiative, a composting project headed by graduate student Justin Eisinga, constitutes the first steps toward reducing greenhouse gasses by lowering the amount of waste build-up in landfills that contribute to the rising release of methane into the atmosphere.
