   Are you interested in joining the agricultural community? Do you seek to acquire the fundamental skills of self employment or are you looking to be more competitive in the job market? SAT has trained transitioning service men and women, as well as members of the general public, to be successful in the sustainable agricultural industry. More than 300 graduates have left our farm ready to help feed our nation since 2009.  We assist with the job placement and business creation after graduation of SAT. Our graduates include successful farm owners and workers, soil-testing pioneers, restaurateurs, and owners of food companies. 

  In this program, students will receive training in hydroponics, drip/micro irrigation, environmental control, soil biology, composting, greenhouse management, and more.

  The SAT daytime full immersion course meets 8-5pm M-F, and the Nights and Weekends class meets Tuesday and Thursday nights 6-10pm and Saturdays.

  SAT will introduce you to sustainable agriculture as a viable career option. Students will have the opportunity to meet with successful industry leaders throughout the program. This course will bring your skills up-to-date with small-scale organic farming methods, help build your resume, and assist you in connecting with the current agricultural job market.
