Purdue Student Farm virtual tour

Flown by Ashley Adair, Purdue Extension Organic Agriculture Specialist

With in-person events canceled during the height of COVID-19 (and then beyond), and no outreach opportunities for farmers or students to do field trips to the Student Farm, a virtual tour was created entirely from the air using the Phantom 4 Pro. The virtual tour shows the various permanent parts of the farm (building, bees, high tunnels) and shows off the “temporary” rotations of research crops and food crops. Now that things are beginning to open up again, this video still has value as both a marketing and education tool.
