Through the use of workshops and age appropriate curriculum, the Sustainable Agriculture Program puts educational outreach at the forefront of everything we do. With the growing concerns of food security and accessibility, it is not enough that we provide a source of food for the community. It is imperative that we build education into every avenue that we serve.

Examples of educational outreach:

  • Pollinator Workshop
  • Vermiculture Workshop
  • Partnership with Sociology of Food learning community
  • Partnership with Sustainable Agriculture course
  • Neighborhood House produce donations
  • Crops in Pots Workshop
  • FREE Campus Supported Agriculture Bundles
  • Tours – SC Native Plant Society; Garden Club of Charleston; CABA Board Members
  • Dorchester District II bee education workshop

The Sustainable Agriculture Program

The Sustainable Agriculture Program is comprised of two distinct garden habitats – the Student Farm and Garden at Dixie Plantation and three urban gardens on the downtown campus. The gardens are managed by a team of undergraduate interns and graduate assistants. All students are able (and encouraged) to receive academic credit for their work in the Program. While many of our students are receiving their education in Environmental Studies, there are opportunities for students in all fields to become involved in the Program. Rounding out the Sustainable Agriculture Program is the Student Farm and Garden Club. The Club provides a volunteer-base for our efforts and informs decisions about workshops, produce offerings, and marketing.

Donations will support the research and education of College of Charleston students as well as fund the equipment, supplies, and training necessary to facilitate their learning. Whether you are a parent, alumni, or friend of the Sustainable Agriculture Program, please consider donating today!

You can also send a check to the department but please indicate fund R566 on the memo line of your check.
