Franco-Ontarian college goes organic

ALFRED, Ontario, Posted August 1, 2005: Ontario's only French-language agricultural college may finally have been granted its educational raison d'etre. For most of its 24-years, Alfred College has relied on the language difference for validation. Now innovative programming is about to carve it a distinctive niche in the province and beyond.

Under the guidance of its managing authority, Guelph University, Alfred is in the process of becoming the first agricultural education centre in North America devoted to organic research.
