Organic and Urban Farming, often called "Sustainable Agriculture" have become a fast growing track for students who have a passion for ecology, business, health, and sustainability. The job outlook for agriculture grads has never been better. As technology enables farming to move to urban areas, and the public appetite for healthy food has grown, a whole new sector of the economy has been introduced. Many State Universities as well as Liberal Arts Colleges offer Majors in this area. If you want to take an abandonded city lot and turn it into a profitable community garden, THIS is the major for you!
Why is this Important?
- Professional Associations are where the industry of the major gather together
- Many have student chapters you can join while in college
- Many offer internships, scholarships, and opportunities in the major
