Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees and Certificates by Department

This one-year certificate provides a theoretical foundation in small farm agriculture through the study of environmental sustainability principles, ecology in agricultural systems, and plant and soil sciences. There is also a practical focus on 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 and associated best agricultural practices tailored to wholesale and direct market enterprises. Students explore career options and apply knowledge, skills, and techniques through internship, practicum, or research experience. This certificate may be combined with the Sustainable Small Farm Agriculture Production Certificate to achieve the larger Sustainable Small Farm Agriculture Systems Certificate.
