David was born in Rochester, N.Y., on March 31, 1922, and lived most of his youth on Staten Island, N.Y. He learned to sail on Conesus Lake in western New York at the family summer home, and spent his teenage years refining and racing his small sloop, the “Bubble,” on New York Harbor.

About Us

Mission

The Antioch College Farm utilizes ecological agriculture to provide an integrated context for liberal arts learning. The Farm allows students to experience, explore, and develop methods of sustainability, through its interwoven functions as an outdoor laboratory for curricular study and a living forum where student labor connects to campus dining and recycling.

Guiding Principles

  • Environmental Sustainability - Growing methods meet the National USDA Organic Standards, but also include ecological, biodynamic, and/or permaculture practices. Structures and designs also reflect our commitment to environmental sustainability, conserving natural resources, and minimizing campus waste.
  • Healthy, Living Soil - The farm uses campus leaves, vegetable dining scraps, and other local “waste” products to create a nutrient-rich soil, high in organic matter, and teaming with microbial life. Special attention is paid to soil conservation and soil ecology.
  • Biodiversity – As a mimic to nature, the Farm grows a variety of perennial and annual plants, including crops that attract beneficial insects.
  • Local Water Quality – No synthetic chemicals or fertilizers, which can leach into the local water shed, are used. Water conservation practices are employed.
  • Experiential Education – The Farm is an outdoor classroom, integrated into the curriculum, providing a living laboratory for experimentation and an interactive learning space.
  • Economic Sustainability – Fresh food grown on the Farm goes entirely to enhance student dining.
