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.
