Two Great Locations, One Organization

At least part of the farm, that is: Campus Farm Manager Jeremy Moghtader just returned from a trip to a remote village in Peru. He was there to advise the University of Michigan student group Sustainability Without Borders Peru Project Team. The team—composed of graduate students from Michigan Engineering, Public Health, and School for Environment and Sustainability—was in Peru to help the community of Chakiqpampa in the Andes Mountains with growing-season extension techniques like those used at the Campus Farm in the hoop houses. These techniques will allow the community to grow produce year-round for local markets and personal consumption. Sustainability without Borders has been working with the community over the past four years on drinking and irrigation-water access which, along with season extension, were identified by the community as important priorities for their health and sustainable development.

Here is Chakiqpampa’s location.
