About

The Desert Farming Initiative (DFI) began in 2013, and is a collaboration between two key groups: University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) College of Business, College of Agriculture, Biotechnology, and Natural Resources & UNR Cooperative Extension.  Located in an urban setting just east of the University’s main campus, DFI is composed of heated greenhouses, hoop houses, vineyard, and commercial wash station. Check out our top level goals, ways to work with us, and the core team members that keep it going.
