Kennebec Valley Community College to Offer a Farming Program

What a great program! Kennebec Valley Community College is going to offer the first two-year sustainable agricultural degree. They have the land.  KVCC bought a 120-acre farm a year ago as part of a larger deal from the old Good Will-Hinckley school.

A year after acquiring a farm as part of a 700-acre expansion, KVCC announced that a grant will help the school offer a sustainable agricultural degree. The grant money will be used to hire a farm manager and buy equipment needed to work the land, including a tractor.

The college’s applied science degree in sustainable agriculture would be the first active program at its new Harold Alfond Campus and also the first program like this in the state. The new program will serve a growing demand in Maine for locally grown foods. Sounds like a great program!
