What is Sustainable Urban Agriculture?
Sustainable Urban Agriculture is the production of food and fiber products using new, emerging and traditional practices in an urban environment. In order for production to be sustainable, it must: protect the environment; include the humane treatment of animals;conserve natural resources; and enhance the quality of of life for future generations.
The Sustainable Urban Agriculture Certification Program is an intensive 12-session training and field-study farm tour employing sustainable agriculture practices. In this program, participants will become familiar with techniques and strategies necessary to grow fresh fruits, vegetables and animals in an urban environment sustainably. Participants learn to work within ordinances and guidelines of city government and galvanize others within the community around agriculture policy. Participants also learn to recycle available resources and discarded items to promote healthier lifestyles and communities.
Join us every Monday in June & July from 6-8 pm. Hands on Saturdays on June 23, July 7 & July 14.
