DEAR NEW FARM:

Is there a university on the East Coast that offers a degree in organic agriculture? If so, which one?

DEAR MICHELLE:

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 Back 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.
