Register for Urban Ag School
Posted July 2018
The School for Urban Agriculture fills a growing need for specialized training in urban farming and community leadership. The Introduction to Urban Agricultural Systems course accommodates students with a range of experiences and interests, from farmers who seek specialized training in urban agriculture to undergraduates working toward careers in community food systems and passionate gardeners. Students will learn about urban food production, distribution and marketing, post-harvest processing and storage, soil health remediation, food policy and more.
This course is open to UW-Madison students, Farm and Industry Short Course students and the community.
The School for Urban Agriculture is a collaborative effort of the Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems and Farm and Industry Short Course at UW-Madison, the Center for Resilient Cities, Community GroundWorks and the Michael Fields Agricultural Institute.
