CUE and the Urban Farm
The Butler Campus Farm was proposed by the Earth Charter Butler
student group in the Fall of 2009. The farm idea arose from an
interest in local and organic foods, and food safety. In January
2010, the farm 'broke ground' near the Butler Prairie at the
intramural fields. The farm is now managed by the CUE's farm
manager, Tim Dorsey and CUE interns. For more information about the
farm visit our website!
Information for the 2013 CSA program coming soon!
The Sweet Bees
The CUE also has a new addition to the farm site. In May 2011 we
installed a beepod! A beepod is a Top Bar bee hive. In
an effort to increase awareness about colony collapse and the
importance of pollinators to our food system, we welcomed about
10,000 honey bees to the farm. Check out and "like" our Facebook page for
