"If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea."
~Antoine De Saint-Exupéry
Mesa Community College is pleased to offer both an AAS degree and Certificate in the area of Sustainable Food Systems. Both offerings prepare those who have a personal interest in the ways that food is grown or raised, harvested and produced, prepared and consumed, as well as returned back to the land, for a successful continued career or further education. Courses are designed to be flexible with core classes being offered both day and night as well as in-person, online, and in hybrid formats.* Read more about the program's history.
The Certificate of Completion is designed for students who may already have a degree in a related or unrelated area or for those who have a personal interest in bringing the multi-faceted concept of Sustainable Food Systems to fruition.
