Grand Valley State University is now offering a five-class Sustainable Food Systems certification. This hands-on learning approach is in response to a growing interest by both the community and students to learn more about sustainable agriculture practices.

Launched this past winter semester, the classes are available to any students accepted to GVSU, whether they are pursuing a degree or not. Coursework includes studies in plant biotechnology, international food and culture, the science of soil and sociology and food.

The required classes include:

  1. Introduction to Environmental Studies and Sustainability
  2. Sustainable Agriculture Practicum: Ideas and Techniques

Three elective courses are also required from two different categories of classes for the certification. The categories are Agriculture and Food and Nutrition.
