Return to Areas of Study Return to: Areas of Study

16 Credits

This one-year micro-certificate provides a practical foundation in sustainable small farm agriculture through the study and hands-on design, planning, and operation of agriculture systems relevant to small farm environments-including the development of farm management and business plans. An on-farm production emphasis at the SAgE Student Farm (Skagit Valley) trains students in sustainable small farm site planning and crop propagation, production, cultivation, harvesting, and postharvest management. This certificate is offered in partnership with the Washington State University Skagit County Extension and Viva Farms, a farm incubator organization. Upon successful completion of this certificate, students qualify to implement their farm management and business plans while establishing an independent sustainable small farm enterprise located at, and with developmental support from Viva Farms.
