The UMD Land Lab is a food justice and environmental research and outreach center located just five miles from the UMD campus. It consists of 10 acres of transitional organic farmland and a five-acre apple orchard. The Land Lab is connected to the larger Research and Field Studies Center (RFSC) which houses other UMD research and outreach projects. The purpose of the Land Lab is to explore research that assists growers in our community, educate students around food and agriculture, and to serve as an incubator for community and university interactions.
