- BA in Sustainable Agriculture & Food Systems
- Catalog Program Description
The way humans produce food can intensify problems like global warming, water scarcity and energy shortages. Farming methods can also become part of the solution for a more habitable world. Green Mountain College’s Sustainable Agriculture & Food Systems program shows students how to take part in the current food revolution that is transforming farming and how we view food.
In the program, agriculture and food systems are presented through the lenses of history, anthropology, the natural sciences, philosophy, business, economics, and art. The College’s 22-acre Cerridwen Farm serves as an agricultural laboratory right on campus. And the farmhouse provides office and classroom space for the Farm & Food Project and other regional organizations.
