LORAIN, Ohio — A new short-term technical certificate program in sustainable agriculture will begin at Lorain County Community College this fall.

The certificate program 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 also 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 Agricultural Technical Institute (OSU/ATI) in Wooster, Ohio, and the George Jones Farm, a program of the New Agrarian Center in Oberlin.

For more information contact Faculty Advisor and Program Coordinator Dr. Ruby Beil, rbeil@lorainccc.edu, 440-366-7222, or Prof. Joseph Freconna, jfreconn@lorainccc.edu, 440-366-4167.
