Urban Agriculture & Food Safety Certificate

The Urban Agriculture/Food Security Program provides students with practical hands-on learning that the agricultural industry demand, while giving special attention to the ecological and social justice aspects of the discipline. At its core, the program focuses on organic and sustainable agriculture systems as a way of introducing students to premium markets, the importance of land stewardship, and to demonstrate techniques that can be used to adapt to a changing climate.

With the primary focus being on land preparation, crop production and post-harvest business opportunities for small-scale urban plots, the program will provide an overview of the ecological and social justice elements that are impacted by the changing landscape of agriculture and food production. Special attention is given to providing access to the prominent demographics surrounding the college through use of ESL support and seminars in both regional/seasonal recipes and medicinal uses for native plants.
