This FIG looks at urban agriculture in the context of both the designed and natural environment, using the campus urban farm as a living laboratory.
College Connections Faculty: Harper Keeler
Harper received his degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Oregon in 1995, and has been involved with the Urban Farm since 1992. He has taught as an adjunct instructor beginning in 2001 and has been directing the Urban Farm since 2008. He earned an M.L.A. in 2011 centering on experimental, place-based education within the pedagogy of Landscape Architecture. He was central to the creation of the Food for Lane County Grass Roots Garden Project, and with the expansion of Urban Farm-related programs into the Eugene-Springfield area.
FIG Assistant: Savanna Puccinelli
Savanna is a junior and loves going on hikes, spending time with her friends, gardening at the Urban Farm, and anything in the outdoors. She is excited to get to know all of her FIG students and show them all of the exciting things that happen at UO. Urban Garden is a great FIG for any student who is interested in being outside in nature and growing food.
