Sustainable Agriculture: The Responsible Choice

Producing food is a noble profession and there is no farming field nobler than sustainable agriculture. Sustainable agriculture is the ecological choice of the future as farmers strive toward the necessary sound land stewardship that will protect the food supply for future generations. Austin Community College is proud to offer a variety of courses through our Elgin Campus for students eager to obtain training in organic food production methods and agricultural business skills.

ACC's Sustainable Agriculture Entrepreneurship Certificate Program focuses on ecological farming, quality of life and farm profitability. Students will gain skills in crop planning and production, equipment operation, livestock diversification, soil health, marketing, and financial planning.
