2015 has been a bountiful year for Terp">">Terp Farm, the University of Maryland’s sustainable vegetable farm providing thousands of pounds of produce to select on-campus dining halls, the Green Tidings mobile food truck and food insecure members of the campus community. The collaborative project is made possible by a partnership between the university’s Dining Services, College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and Office of Sustainability.  

To celebrate the first full year of production, the Terp Farm team invited the entire campus community to the inaugural Fall"> Harvest Festival held Friday, October 9th. More than 500 people attended the event held at the College of AGNR’s Upper Marlboro research facility located about 15 miles south of campus. Students, faculty and staff from the university were treated to free food prepared using ingredients grown on Terp Farm and got an up-close look at the farm’s operations.
