The urban and suburban landscape is evolving. Urban dwellers have the desire to develop urban landscapes and grow food to support families, neighbourhoods and communities. Plant enthusiasts look to grow and maintain landscapes that are functional, offer sustainability and provide a strong aesthetic value in our urban environments.
The Certificates in Sustainable Urban Agriculture and Horticulture develop the potential for urban landscapes to be more than just aesthetically pleasing. Learn the strategies that allow your urban space – backyard, balcony or public lot – to become a destination for the growth of plants that is both sustainable and productive.
