Located on the unceded homelands of the Kickapoo, Peoria, Kaskaskia, Potawatomi, Myaamia, and Oceti Sakowin peoples, Zumwalt Acres is a regenerative agriculture research community, dedicated to cultivating a model for ecologically sustainable, socially responsible, and Jewish land stewardship practices in the midwest.

Recently, the farm transitioned an acre of vegetable production to perennial shrubs and trees, including raspberries, aronia berries and apples, and installed a protective fence around the crops. The new addition is thanks to funding from a Projects for Peace grant awarded to Daniel Block '25.

This past spring, these duties were often in the care of Zac Gondelman ’26.

“This is a university that’s really changed my life and allowed me to grow into the person I am now. It's really challenged me socially and academically to grow and mature. . .My life would be very different had I not gone to Brandeis.”
