ENVR 201 - Agricultural Operations


CR: 1
Prerequisite: Permission of instructor, based on a pre-registration meeting between the student and the instructor. In this meeting, the students will describe their goals for the course, and the instructor will discuss expectations and any special information based on the enterprise(s) that will be the focus of the course that semester. Over the course of a semester, students will gain hands-on experience with at least one campus agricultural operation, including the greenhouses, vineyard, apiary, community garden, and/or other emerging enterprise and land management activities. Through experiential and collaborative learning activities, students will explore a range of responsibilities in an agricultural operation, which can include site preparation, growing, managing pests/diseases, harvesting, business planning and management, communications, and marketing. In addition to activities on the Sweet Briar campus, there may be occasional field trips to local farms and agribusinesses. Students will also hear from guest speakers who are leaders and experts in agricultural and agribusiness operations. May be repeated up to 3 times. May not take concurrently with ENVR 382 .
