Advancing agriculture through work-integrated learning
Share this story

Discovering new ways to grow food sustainably has become an increasingly crucial global challenge.

Students are receiving work-integrated learning opportunities in agriculture through Trent University’s Sustainable Agriculture Experimental Farm. The 33-acre living laboratory enables students to work with researchers and local industry to help advance the sector, including helping to improve soil health, food security and crop yields.

By studying sustainable agriculture, students work together to create food systems that are responsible, efficient, effective and viable, studying the links between farm and table, and their implications for people, the economy and the planet.

Students also learn about the challenges and benefits of producing and distributing healthy, affordable food in sustainable ways, while preparing for a career where they can affect change and positively impact their community.
