The certificate program uses a cohort model, and is designed to induce self-inquiry as fellows define and advance their interest in agroecology, farming & food pathways. Fellows will complete 14 weekly sessions over 4 months, assignments (including professional development topics), as well as work with a mentor to complete a learning plan to complete 80 hours of self-directed learning (50 hours of hands-on work & 30 hours of technical training). We use Google classroom to facilitate course materials, assignment submissions, and meet virtually using Zoom. Key course themes include: (1) Food Sovereignty, (2) Food Systems, (3) Participatory Action, (4) Land Defense, (5) Sustainable Agroecosystems, (6) Agroecological Practices.
