Each Certificate Program consists of 4 classes. Classes usually meet twice per week, in the evenings, or once on the weekend. A certificate of completion will be issued upon the successful completion of each class option, along with the prerequisite "Principles of Sustainable Urban Agriculture." For those classes that meet on the UDC Van Ness campus, building and room location will be provided at a later date.
To receive a certificate in Sustainable Urban Agriculture, participants will pay a one-time fee of $200. If a participant wishes to take an individual class, the cost is $60 per class. Payment can be made before or at the time of the first class, by check or money order made payable to the "University of the District of Columbia" and use 3901C in the memo line.
The University of the District of Columbia is located at 4200 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington DC, 20008. The Van Ness/UDC metro stop is located on the Red Line. There is also a parking garage on campus for those who would prefer to drive ($8 for 1-3 hrs, $12 for 4-6 hrs). Limited metered street parking may be available.
Saturday classes will be held at Firebird Farm located at 12001 Old Baltimore Pike Rd., Beltsville, Md. 20705. No public transportation is available.
