An information session for the new program will be held at 6 p.m., Tuesday, June 28, 2011 in College Center on the LCCC campus. Visit www.lorainccc.edu/sustain to register for the free information session.
This program, which is the first of its kind in Ohio, will give students hands-on experience in careers in agriculture and food systems. Students will learn key sustainability and land stewardship skills as they study the interaction between food, human health and ecosystems services. Students will contribute to the production, distribution, and marketing of locally grown produce through hands-on experiences with local farmers and growers.
Some courses will require travel time to off-campus sites.
This program is in collaboration with the Ohio State University and the George Jones Memorial Farm in Oberlin.
