“The knowledgeable, warm, and downright fun staff provide an urban agriculture experience no traditional classroom can replace. The interactive hands-on learning across multiple subjects kept me captivated.
This course left me feeling equipped with the basic tools and information I needed to become an eco-entrepreneur in an environment that will inspire the next generation of sustainable leaders.”
