The New Roots Sustainable Agriculture & Food Certificate program provides in-depth knowledge of social, scientific, and cultural factors about how we bring food to our table.

Through internships, electives, special projects, and events, students will learn skills that few other schools in the country currently offer high school students. Students will also have a range of culinary arts experiences focusing on the connections between the farm, the food, and the table.

Required electives include Café, Culinary Arts, Foodshed Studies, Sustainable Entrepreneurship, and Ecological Design.
