ISU Good Earth Student Farm


No upcoming events

Good Earth is responsible for running a small, sustainable-focused CSA (community supported agriculture) farm. All major decisions are made by the executive team and members under the advisement of faculty advisers. Given the privileged access to campus resources, we are only able to provide our share membership to ISU community. Anyone outside of the ISU community is welcome to subscribe and participate in our social activities.

GESF T-Shirt

We are happy to announce that an official GESF t-shirt design has been decided upon (see below) and we are now ready for ordering!
Please view the t-shirt design and fill out this form on Customink on or before August 5th, 2019 for the current order. You will not pay for the t-shirt when you order, but we will be sending out a future email letting you know what you owe in order to receive your t-shirt and what method of payment is preferred. 
We are aiming for a t-shirt price around 10 to 15 dollars, but the more we sell, the lower that price will be. Therefore, this t-shirt order form is open to anyone and everyone, regardless of involvement with the club. Please feel free to forward this email to anyone you think may be interested in supporting this unique organization. 
P.S. the "Sharing the Harvest" phrase will be aligned with the bottom of the logo by the time of printing. 

Have a great night and we hope you order your official GESF t-shirt!

First work day!

Hello Workshares,


Our work days will start the week of June 4th, with the first workday being the Tuesday shift.

Please come prepared to work in the field. Closed toed shoes are a must! A hat and water is also a good idea.


As a reminder we will meet out at the farm at the main building 55519 170th St. Ames, IA.

Please let us know if you will need a carpool so that we can plan to have the van leave from lot 41 at 5:10pm to arrive in time for the shift.


Here is a link to the schedule for the season


If you have not filled out your workday preferences please do so here.


We will be using an app called Whatsapp as a platform for all workshares to communicate with each other about swapping shifts if needed anytime throughout the season. Please download the app as I will be inviting you to join the group chat for 2019 workshares. We will be using the phone number provided in the contracts unless otherwise indicated.


Looking forward to having you all at the farm!


Ellena Wolff

Farm Manager
