Sustainable Agriculture Education

Our Sustainable Agriculture program is designed to provide you with knowledge and skills in agro-ecological sciences, natural resource management, and environmental conservation. With an emphasis on ‘small farm’ agriculture, you will learn how to sustainably manage production and operations as the foundation of a resilient and local food system.

SVC is a member of the Sustainable Agriculture Education (SAgE) partnership with Seattle Central College (SCC), Edmonds Community College (ECC), Washington State University (WSU), and other higher education institutions and farm and food system organizations in an effort to provide diverse educational opportunities in sustainable agriculture and related fields. Students may substitute SVC SAgE courses with SCC or ECC SAgE courses, with Department Chair approval, if alternative SAgE courses are better suited to meet your educational or career goals.
