Food and farming have always been central to our existence, but it’s only been in the last few decades that we mistakenly decided to pretend that we could leave it all up to someone else.
The GMC Sustainable Food Systems program is all about reclaiming what matters about nature, nurture, and nutrition – by way of learning why it matters. How we as individuals relate to food is usually a pretty good indicator of how we relate to the environment, our society, other cultures, and other animals.
GMC takes farming and food issues seriously. I’m proud to work in a college that has a working farm as a centerpiece of campus life and that doesn’t shy away from the complexity of issues surrounding how we sustain ourselves, our environment, and our culture.
Green Mountain College has been focused on the environment for over fifteen years, and is consistently ranked among the top colleges and universities in the world with an environmental mission.
With a 22-acre working farm on campus and a community that is passionate about creating a sustainable future, GMC is the perfect platform as you take the next step in your career.
