Sustainable Hydroponic Agriculture and Rural Entrepreneurship (Certificate)

Want to work in the sustainable agricultural industry? This certificate covers traditional agribusiness and the emerging field of controlled environment agriculture.

Students will learn skills that focus on the controlled agriculture industry, including the new medical marijuana production industry that has entered Pennsylvania. The medical marijuana production industry is highly regulated, with plants grown and harvested in a controlled environment. This hydroponic program will train students for employment in this and other agribusiness industries.

This program is looking at a Fall 2024 start. Express your interest today.

In partnership with Sandyvale Memorial Park, the Sustainable Hydroponic Agriculture and Rural Entrepreneurship (SHARE) certificate offers both theory and practical hands-on application in a greenhouse using actual hydroponic equipment. The College will use the greenhouse for both hydroponic plant growth and traditional greenhouse growing.
