Howdy!Farm- Texas A&M University Student Run Farm

The Sustainable Agriculture Student Association (SASA) is a group of Texas A&M students who oversee growth, publicity, management, and fundraising for Howdy!Farm. Howdy!Farm is the project child of SASA. The goals for Howdy!Farm is to build leaders in sustainable agriculture by the process of high-impact experiential learning. Our missions are four-fold: provide Texas A&M students and community members with hands-on experience in interdisciplinary sustainable agriculture, reconnect members of the community to their food sources, facilitate sustainability research for the state of Texas, and promote organic, sustainable, and environmentally-responsible farming methods. We are currently meeting these goals in the Bryan/College Station area but are eager to expand that influence outwardly to the surround rural community as well as the Houston area. We serve a diverse peoples; families, students, homeless, elderly, ect. Our hope is to grow our influence by reaching more people through increased production of horticulture crops, fruits, herbs, ect. The seed money will be used directly as such, for seeds and the growth of said seeds. We plan on breaking grown on previously uncultivated land adjacent to our current area of production. We would love to provide more healthy, environmentally friendly sourced vegetables to our lovely community with the help of your admirable seed grant. Lettuce Turnip the Beet!
