DEAR NEW FARM:
Is there a university on the East Coast that offers a degree
in organic agriculture? If so, which one?
The University of Florida offers an undergraduate degree
in organic agriculture, as does Colorado State University
and Washington State University. Michigan State University
offers a 16-month certificate program. Right in your home
state, Central Carolina Community College offers an excellent
two-year sustainable agriculture program (see the article
to school, back to the land); both this outstanding program
and NC State’s extensive sustainable ag program place
a major focus on organics. Check out our Farming
for Credit directory for a comprehensive guide to sustainable
ag education around the country.
