Education Programs

Educating New Generations from High School to University 

Sustainable agriculture education programs provide new and returning students from all backgrounds and experience with the knowledge and skills to make meaningful contributions toward resilient and local food systems. Students may choose various points of entry, study different aspects of sustainable agriculture, and pursue educational pathways that build upon previous academic credentials.

For instance, high school students may take designated courses, at their high school or at a partner college, that transfer into specific college programs. Furthermore, college students may enroll in small or large certificate programs or degree programs, which share some of the same courses common to all college programs, and subsequently transfer into a partner university degree program.
