An initiative of the National Council for Workforce Education, the Sustainability Education and Economic Development Center (SEED) supports community colleges and their partners with curriculum and resources to transform educational programs for a sustainable future.

Santa Cruz Agroecology Institute

The mission of the Center for Agroecology & Sustainable Food Systems is to research, develop, and advance sustainable food and agricultural systems that are environmentally sound, economically viable, socially responsible, non-exploitative, and that serve as a foundation for future generations. The Center produces a variety of publications for researchers, farmers, students, educators, and home gardeners. Much of this material, including a Sustainable Agriculture Curriculum, is available for free download. It includes materials on how to connect college food systems with local farmers.
