About this Program

The certificate in Sustainable Food Systems offers a practical, hands-on learning experience in the rapidly growing field of small-scale local/urban agriculture. Students will learn how to grow, harvest, and market sustainably grown produce in urban and suburban environments. Foundational courses in soil and plant sciences, greenhouse production, integrated pest management, and sustainable landscape practices will provide the groundwork from which other courses will build. This certificate program is geared towards individuals with interests in growing healthy and nutritious food, based on organic and sustainable methods and a strong desire to engage both mind and body while working in an outdoor environment.
