Sustainable Agriculture Program at Central Carolina Community College accepting applications

Ready to learn more about the Principles and Practices of Regenerative Agriculture? The Sustainable Agriculture Program at CCCC in Pittsboro is accepting applications NOW for Fall 2018.

Apply online: http://www.cccc.edu/admissions/apply/

At CCCC’s sustainable agriculture program students have the opportunity for “Real Farming- Right Now”. The Pittsboro-based program has an on-campus, year-round certified organic farm that is an integral part of teaching and learning. A commitment to building and stewarding healthy soil through regenerative practices is at the heart of this entrepreneurial focused program.

The student learning experience includes year-round vegetable production using field and hoop house technology, and an opportunity to learn best practices for incorporating pasture-based poultry and cultivated mushroom enterprises. Students also participate in the incorporation of sustainable technologies (solar, biofuels, reduced tillage) that make this established and accessible program the place to get started in regenerative, organic farming.

Students have the opportunity to meet and network with a wide variety of sustainable farms, businesses and organizations while participating in focused, practical education and training. Whether you are exploring the possibilities of a career in sustainable farming or you are already farming and recognize the need for some targeted learning opportunities (soil science, marketing, business plans!) you are welcome at CCCC Sustainable Agriculture Program.

Interested students may apply online: http://www.cccc.edu/admissions/apply/

Fall 2018 registration for new students is ongoing; Fall classes will begin August 20th.
