This educational program is designed for beginning and existing farmers, academic students interested in farming, as well as those in professions that support farming and ranching or who have interests in sustainable food systems. WSU, in partnership with the University of Idaho, and the non-profit Rural Roots offers a series of courses for people interested in sustainable farming and food systems. In the Cultivating Success™
program, students learn farm planning, decision-making and research skills. They also gain support from instructors, established farmers and fellow students as they develop sustainable agricultural enterprises. Courses include classroom instruction, hands-on learning, farm visits, and guest experts. Courses are taught by WSU and UI faculty and are offered around the state through a number of Extension offices in the two states. Courses are also available for Continuing Education Credits (CEUs).
