Oregon State club hopes to grow student garden into full-fledge degree program

Posted May 25, 2005: Interest in sustainable agriculture has grown to such a level at Oregon State University its Organic Growers Club decided to get some serious information on the next step from big time Sustainable Ag programs. To do this the group organized its first Organic/Ecological Agriculture Summit for several western state universities that have programs in sustainable agriculture, inviting such heavy hitters as UC-Davis, UC-Santa Cruz and the University of Oregon. The group hopes it can learn from these schools--many of whom took similar beginnings, a student farm run by those with an interest in sustainable agricultural principles, and turned them into a full-fledged sustainable agriculture program.
