Degree:Certificate
Field of Study:Agroecology and Sustainable Agriculture
Description:The three-semester Sustainable Agriculuture program is designed for new and beginner farmers seeking an intensive, applied learning experience in sustainable, ecological or natural farming methods. Farming practices in this program are based on the principles of environmental stewardship, farmer profitability, social responsibility and community health.

Following the progression of the farm year, course work will focus on the principles and practices of sustainable agriculture, small farm operations and viability, and the exploration of new and expanding niche markets. You will also examine strategies for direct marketing and new farm business models. The culmination of this learning is the development of your own business case and farm plan. With experienced farmers and practitioners as your guides, the program is enriched by farm field days, site visits, community-based learning activities and excellent resource materials. An 18-week summer co-op experience creates further opportunities for specialization.
