What will I learn?

Be a trailblazer with Lakeland College’s agricultural sustainability diploma.

Our innovative program bridges agricultural and environmental science. As well, it merges the concerns of both the public and producers. Consumers want to know where and how their food is grown. Farmers and ranchers care about conservation and productivity.

Through the program, you’ll be at the forefront of best practices and certified production.

You’ll spend time in field labs honing skills related to:

  • soil science
  • water management
  • grasslands
  • livestock production
  • crop production

You’ll apply that soil, water and plant knowledge to create solutions for sustainable food production. You'll also learn through an industry practicum.

Your skill set will be sought after by:

  • certified value chains
  • conservation groups
  • municipalities
