Wells, in a memo to Dr. Tyndall, wrote “This degree will prepare students with the knowledge and skills necessary to operate a small, diversified fruit and vegetable farm business and/or to be employed in a variety of positions focusing on soil health, horticulture and food security.” Program graduates could continue their education in CWC’s Bachelor of Applied Science Program.
The Wyoming Community College Commission must approve the request before the program can be offered, which is anticipated to be this fall.
