Sustainable Horticulture re-launch

We are delighted to announce the re-launch of our postgraduate programme in Sustainable Horticulture and Food Production recruiting now for January 2014.

With a new format, additional partners and pioneering land-based projects for students to work on, we believe that what we are offering is right at the cutting edge of research and practice in food production for a sustainable future.

The programme, which now offers MSc, PG Dip and PG Cert fully residential at Schumacher College, allows students to immerse themselves in the unique, transformative and small-group learning environment for which we are renowned.

Our new partners, the Organic Research Centre (Elm Farm) and the Campaign for Real Farming, add to the already strong collaboration of Schumacher College, Plymouth University and the Centre for Alternative Technology.

Please help us to spread the word through your networks. A different food system is possible!
