A Site for Experimentation & Learning

Research

As an education center, Unadilla Community Farm is a site for experimentation and learning. We showcase a wide variety of sustainable farming techniques and conduct on-farm research to trial new methods, offer recommendations, and provide replicable models for our interns and the broader farming community. From collecting soil samples to measuring the pH of liquid fertilizers, interns gain hands-on experience to prepare them for future careers in agricultural research. In addition to our own original research, we provide technical assistance and allocate on-site test plots for our permaculture internship graduates to carry out their own independent research projects post-internship.

Dynamic Accumulators

Unadilla Community Farm is currently conducting original research for Northeast SARE project FNE20-967 on dynamic accumulators. This two-year research project began in February 2020 and will conclude December 2021. Published findings soon to come!
