"The Profitable Small Farms program combines hands-on learning and classroom teaching to develop the skills to start a small farm. The program has a dual focus on the technical skills to produce food sustainably with minimal negative environmental impacts and the entrepreneurial skills to develop and manage a community-based agricultural business. Throughout the program students practice growing food crops and manage small animals on the LBCC student organic farm. Farm-direct marketing is experienced by managing the college CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program, and selling to the campus restaurants and students and staff at the college farmers' market."
Institution Type: College/University (2-year)
