This certificate will provide you the basic training needed to diversify and expand farm production, boost local economies, increase access to fresh food, and decrease the need for extensive transportation of foods. You will contribute directly to the production of locally grown produce through hands-on experiences with local farmers and growers. Training in specialty crop production allows you to explore career pathways in agriculture, cooperative systems, and marketing.

Career Opportunities

The certificate may allow you to work in a nursery or greenhouse, as farmworker or agricultural technician, or to produce your own specialized crops.

The courses in this program may count toward the requirements for a One-Year Sustainable Agriculture Certificate or an Associate of Science in Sustainable Agriculture.
