Rian Fried Center
for Sustainable Agriculture & Food Systems
Winter 2019-2020 Newsletter
Sterling uses education as a force to address critical ecological problems caused by unlimited growth and consumption, including how predominant agricultural practices threaten human and natural communities. Recognizing this, the Rian Fried Center for Sustainable Agriculture & Food Systems (RFC) at Sterling College cultivates the next generation of farmers, ecologists, and activists with exemplary education and research opportunities that restore functional ecologies, revitalize connections between people and place, and promote regenerative economies of the working landscape.
The Rian Fried Center newsletter highlights these efforts by showcasing new initiatives and partnerships, offering reflections of the growing season, and introducing the new faces on the farm.
