The College's Practice of Organic Agriculture spans 3 quarters and has both an academic "emphasis" and an on-farm component at the Evergreen State College Organic Farm. The course addresses practices in organic farming; running a farm business; and marketing food. One quarter explores "organic food production systems using the three pillars of sustainability - economic, environmental, and social justice." The Evergreen College also has a permaculture site, demonstration site, compost facility, and a biodiesel generation project. Evergreen College does not offer Majors or Minors; students have the options of focusing studies in a particular area and designating that as their area of emphasis.
Institution Type: College/University (4-year)
