Research & Education

The B Street Farm & Living Museum is located on a Metro-owned property less than one mile from the Pacific University campus in Forest Grove. The project is a demonstration site with the mission to provide inspiration and information about environmentally sensitive, sustainable living practices for Pacific University students, area residents and local schools. Site projects engage participants in community building, research and demonstration to provide the impetus for sustainable practices in the community in accordance with permaculture principles and ethics.  The farm is certified Organic by Oregon TIlth and grows produce which is served in the campus dining hall.

The Environmental Studies Program offers majors in environmental studies-sustainable design, in environmental studies-policy, culture and society, and in environmental science. Minors also are available in environmental policy and environmental studies.
