Mike Popovich is the farm manager for the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR). He oversees the Garden for the Community, which began in 2009 and transformed into a retail opportunity in 2014. As the garden expanded in 2015, incorporating high tunnels for season extension, the retail aspect grew to include the fresh market farm stand, netting $10,000 to $20,000 in annual sales. Popovich and his student interns also maintain relationships with about 10 restaurants, focusing on farm-to-table establishments to showcase CANR farm products. In addition, Popovich leads trainings for beginning farmers, twilight and class tours and outreach to local high schools/grade schools and partners with UD Athletics to provide nutritional assets to student-athletes.
