The Leopold Center is a research and education center on the campus of Iowa State University created to identify and reduce negative environmental and social impacts of farming and develop new ways to farm profitably while conserving natural resources. The Center's work is focused in these initiatives - ecological systems research, marketing and food systems research, policy research and cross-cutting research that bridges all areas (water, energy, soil and alternative farming systems).
The Friday, Nov. 20, produce delivery from the Student Organic Farm (SOF) was one of the largest this year. The group delivers orders every Friday at Curtiss Hall. With Thanksgiving coming soon, ISU faculty, staff and students picked up their orders of brussel sprouts, califlower, white, purple and sweet potatoes, and several apple varieties. The student-run farm is at the Iowa State University Horticulture Research Station north of Ames and was launched several years ago with a Leopold Center grant.
