Sustainable Agriculture and Specialty Crops Overview 2014                    

    
Lorain County Community College now offers certificates in Sustainable Agriculture, Specialty Crop Growers and Permaculture Design.

Sustainable agriculture is one that follows the principles of nature to develop systems for raising crops and livestock that are, like nature, self-sustaining. Sustainable agriculture’s success is indistinguishable from vibrant rural communities and rich lives for families on profitable farms that provide for current and future generations. 

LCCC offers two Short-Term Technical Certificates in this field: Sustainable Agriculture #7190 and Specialty Crop Growers #7191.  Both programs provide hands-on experience and career exploration in agriculture and food production. Students will learn key sustainability and land stewardship skills as they study the interaction between food, human health and ecosystems services.

Students will contribute to the production, distribution, and marketing of locally grown produce through hands-on experiences with local farmers and growers. Some courses will require travel time to off-campus farms and learning sites. This program is in collaboration with Black River Organics in Wellington, OH.
