Students learn about soils, agriculture methods, and complementary business methods in specialized workshops and classes. A certificate is available in Landscape, Organic Farm, and Garden Production. Core courses address the fundamentals of plant selection and propagation, landscape, farm and garden design, installation, and maintenance. Time-tested and newly developed technologies in organic landscape, farming, and gardening, are taught side-by-side in both indoor and outdoor settings. Courses are designed to meet the needs of the expanding organic landscape, farming, and gardening industry. Both industry professionals and home gardeners participating in the program use the farm as a teaching lab. The pilot class-which was not listed in the class schedule-was over-enrolled by the second meeting. Since then, the "Principals and Practices of Organic Farming and Gardening" classes have all filled immediately.
