Continuing Education – Summer 2016
The School of the New American Farmstead at Sterling College offers continuing education courses for agrarians, culinarians, entrepreneurs, and lifelong learners. We provide a variety of workshops, classes, and certifications that will inspire you, equip you with marketable skills, and provide you with new perspectives on integrated, community-centered farming and food production.
Our hands-on courses will require you to roll up your sleeves and dig in or get cooking. The School of the New American Farmstead’s experiential approach will engage all of your senses and impart techniques perfected by some of the world’s most skilled ecological farmers and craft-food producers. Our instructors pair their singular expertise with enthusiastic and effective teaching. In small classes, you will work one-on-one with sustainable agriculture pioneers and reverent food artisans, who will also share illuminating history, fundamental theory, and practical information. On Sterling’s Farm and in its teaching kitchen, you will have ample opportunity to put your new knowledge into practice. Visits with the stewards of Vermont’s working landscape and the visionary leaders of its vibrant food movement will complete the immersive experience.
Give your passion for food and farming the time and space it deserves. Explore a lifestyle or career that feeds your body, mind, and soul. Learn to replenish the land, relish its bounty, and revive time-tested rural arts.
Sterling College is waiting for you.
