Antioch Farm as a Learning Laboratory

The Antioch Farm plays an indispensable role in the mission of Antioch College, and our community of students, faculty and staff value the Antioch Farm as an integral component of campus sustainability as well as a learning platform for the community. The Farm is a learning lab and is used by faculty across all four of Antioch’s major areas of study for teaching and research. See below for examples of the many ways the Antioch Farm enhances learning in the classroom.

  • Sciences
  • Social Sciences
  • Humanities
  • Arts
  • Global Seminar
  • Independent Research

Sciences

BIO 210  Botany – This course investigates the wide variety of plant forms and the molecular mechanisms that generate them. It provides a conceptual framework for understanding plant development that includes an evolutionary perspective. Ecological principles are used to examine plant population and community processes. Special attention will be given to plant/animal interactions such as pollination, dispersal, and herbivory. The lab component will use local habitats to gain hands-on experience in field observations and data collection and analysis.  The Farm is used for botanical surveys and multiple labs (image 1220, in Botany folder, under kim landbergen, shared drive)

  • LAB: Autumn Aster comparative morphology: Students collect and dissect native blooming Autumn members of the Aster family, and compare these to domesticated varieties found in the Antioch Farm (Cosmos, Tickseed, Marigold, Zinnia).
  • LAB: Comparative root anatomy and nitrogen-fixer nodulation: Students collect wild and domestic species from the Antioch Farm to study and compare root types and their function (fibrous, tap, prop, adventitious, etc.). In addition, excavation of example legume crops allows for examination of the presence of N2-fixation nodules on legume roots.

 

ENVS 105 Introduction to Environmental Science - Farm Manager Kat Christen talks with the Environmental Science class about ecological agriculture and helps coordinate on farm student plantings and projects.Kim Landbergen

ENVS 230 Soils: A Living System - This course explores the nature, properties, and use of soil to capture its value and to understand better its critical role as a foundation of life. It is an introduction to soil organisms, and includes interactions between organisms, their processes, and metabolism with a major focus on microorganisms. This course also introduces students to basic concepts of soil science and the soil’s contribution to the functions of natural and anthropogenic ecosystems. It provides an overview of soil’s morphological, physical, chemical, and biological properties, and how these interact to form a soil with unique characteristics and  ecosystem function. Students discuss soils of the world from the perspective of soil taxonomy, the processes that form these soils, and land use properties specific to each soil order. Current issues regarding the proper use and management of soils are investigated. The Antioch Farm is used to collect and analyze soil samples.   


ENVS 310 Soil Science - This class uses the Antioch Farm to collect and analyze soil samples, with multi-week labs focusing on soil chemistry, fertility, structure, and land use on campus, on the Farm, and in the Glen Kim Landbergen

ENVS 319 Hydrology - In this class, The Antioch Farm is utilized for multiple labs on campus stormwater while other labs took place in the Glen (in-stream)

ENVS 339 Ecological Agriculture - This course focuses upon the science of ecological agriculture and the importance of understanding and comparing the current methodologies of agriculture with appropriate alternatives. This course will also focus on understanding the ecological concepts that are of universal application in all bioregions where agriculture is practiced. A special emphasis is be placed on alternatives to non-sustainable systems that rely too heavily on chemicals and irrigation, such as the development of systems that mimic native ecosystems. ENVS 339 uses the Antioch Farm on a weekly basis to investigate and apply course content to the practical application of growing crops. Weekly farm labs cover operations, biology, soils, pest control, fertility, permaculture, and more.

PSYC240 Somatic Psychology - Dr. Deanne Bell’s class utilized the farm to discuss the relationship between raising farm animals and eating them, the difference between having an intimate relationship with animals for sustenance and nutrition vs. being alienated from the animals and the earth and eating industrially processed food.
