Organic Agriculture Program Support Fund
Growing food that brings us enjoyment, health, and sustenance is one of the cornerstones of horticulture. The Certificate Program in Organic Agriculture, coordinated through the Horticulture Department, provides students with an opportunity to gain knowledge and skills to produce USDA-certified organic food and also helps connect students to the range of sustainable food production practices along with local community production of food. Changes are coming to the certificate in the coming year,however, ALL of the current courses that focus on organics will continue to be taught. Donations to this fund will be used to support educational efforts through our work with UGArden, student-run, organic teaching farm and related educational support for students interested in pursuing a career that supports the organic food production and education. Thank you in advance for your support.
