Regenerative Food Systems certificate
Be a leader in the world of food and farming
Advocate for food security, be a farmer, or better understand environmental justice with FLC's Regenerative Food Systems certificate.
With field trips and land-based courses, roll up your sleeves and experience how food systems can (and should) be sustainable and renewing for the planet and people.
You’ll take a series of courses that will cover the foundations of environmental justice, regenerative agriculture, soil, and politics.
In addition to completing an internship, many of the courses in this program include experiential and place-based work.
You might be outside in the campus garden daily or have field trips to local farms, including our Old Fort Farm in Hesperus, Colorado.
You could explore ways communities develop around their environment as you visit places in the Southwest, from Black Mesa, Arizona, to Taos, New Mexico.
"The class that intrigued me the most was Agroecology; we had hands-on experience with each concept we discussed, making the content more memorable and engaging."
