Event description

Description

The College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES), of the University of the District of Columbia (UDC), is offering two workshop series for entrepreneurs. These series are designed to provide entrepreneurs with the skills they need to grow vegetables for the purpose of starting their own food or agriculture-based business.

The soil series is focused on soil-based growing and the soil-less series is based on hydroponic and aquaponic growing. Participants will receive a certificate for successfully completing all of the workshops in at least one of the series. These series are free and open to the public.
