Some very exciting changes to the SFC program for 2017!  In addition to getting a structured, curriculum based program, amazing food and a great place to live our students will also walk away from the program with money in their pocket!  Read the ‘Full Details Package’ below for more information.

The Sustainable Farming Certificate (SFC) is an intensive, curriculum based program designed to help participants looking to acquire comprehensive food growing skills and explore the world of sustainable local farming.
