US (CA): Student Farm at UC Davis hires Katharina Ullmann as new Director

The Student Farm at UC Davis is excited to welcome Katharina Ullmann as the new Student Farm Director. Ullmann’s rich 13-year background in sustainable agriculture research and experiential education will provide excellent leadership for the farm’s 20 acres of organic vegetable, fruit, and flower production, its campus food security efforts, and its diverse learning opportunities.

Katharina Ullmann

The Student Farm is part of the Agricultural Sustainability Institute at UC Davis (ASI), a research, education, and outreach organization addressing major issues in sustainable agriculture and food systems throughout California and across the planet.

Ullmann earned her Ph.D. in Entomology here at UC Davis in 2014, and most recently served as the National Crop Pollination Specialist for the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, where she led efforts to help farmers ensure successful crop pollination. Her professional background includes pollinator research experiments in collaboration with citizen scientists and growers, environmental education programs for K-12 students, mentoring undergraduates, and five years of farming in the United States and Austria.

Like many of the students who come to the farm, college was Katharina’s first introduction to sustainable agriculture. Through an undergraduate class, Katharina first heard the term “sustainable agriculture,” then gained a better understanding of what it meant in practice when a local farmer spoke to her class.
