We have a good relationship with the Agronomy Faculty of the University of the Republic, (Facultad de Agronomía, Universidad de la República), which is located very close to Campo Longley. Students from the faculty sometimes visit the farm, and they have used our farm as a case study in research projects.

In the past we have also had students from the UK come to work on the Farm to carry out projects, normally over a couple of months. If you have a project in mind, and would be interested in coming to work on the farm, we would love to hear from you.

Elspeth Queening - 2012 & 2013

In 2012, Elspeth visited and worked at Campo Longley helping on the dairy for 3 months, including painting the Campo Longley mural. This was the time of the new diary re-fit, therefore she participated and helped during this transition from milking 20 cows to 40 cows at one time! She also worked teaching English as a Foreign Language in a local language school in Progresso. In 2013, Elspeth then returned to Campo Longley for 6 months to facilitate a renovation project on a farm house.

At the time of her visit, Elspeth was on a gap year which led her to return to university, Goldsmiths London to study Social Work MA.
