Nov 2nd, 2012 | Category: News

LYNNWOOD – Edmonds Community College has been awarded a $900,000, three-year grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) entitled the Sustainable Agriculture Education (SAgE) Collaborative. In partnership with Skagit Valley College, Seattle Central Community College, and Washington State University, Edmonds Community College will lead the SAgE Collaborative in preparing students for careers in sustainable agriculture and related environmental fields. With a focus on agricultural best practices within urban, suburban, and rural landscapes, the SAgE Collaborative will: develop new and improve existing innovative community college curriculum; offer field-based research and real-world service and internship opportunities; design education and career pathways from secondary school through two- and four-year institutions; establish a metro and rural student farm in cooperation with 21 Acres Farm and Viva Farms; and expand the Collaborative throughout Puget Sound to demonstrate a bioregional model for sustainable agriculture education and community development.
