Participants in the certificate will gain an understanding of sustainability and how it relates to the current United States food system model. The certificate will provide a strong foundation of learning and skills for working in regional food systems from production, to advocacy, to service, to education. The certificate will provide opportunities for online learners to acquire the knowledge, skills, and understanding that are needed to create change in their communities and build a sustainable food system model for the future – one that is ecologically, economically, and socially viable.
