Sustainable Agriculture and Specialty Crops Overview 2015                       

    
Lorain County Community College now offers certificates in Sustainable Agriculture, Specialty Crop Growers and Permaculture Design.  Check out the new curriculum guides in sustainable agriculture: the Associate of Applied Science and our One-Year Technical Certificate program.

Updated curriculum guides will be posted February 2015. Copies are available in the Science and Math Division. 

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's Sustainable Agriculture Program provides 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.
