Want to learn more about ag careers? iAgriculture coming to Harnell College

The Agricultural Business and Technology Institute at Hartnell College is offering a new series of informational workshops called iAgriculture

iAgriculture offers an insider’s look at the agriculture industry in Salinas Valley through hands-on activities, field trips, and conversations with professionals in the field. Participants will visit a diverse range of local ag-related businesses such as strawberry growers, flower production companies, vegetable transplant operations, laboratories and research facilities, companies focused on processing and handling, fabrication, packaging, trucking and transportation, and marketing.

iAgriculture aims to increase students’ awareness of the wide array of career options in agriculture, the different paths they can take in pursuit of those careers, and the relevant classes and certificate/degree programs offered at Hartnell College.

The iAgriculture series includes a five-day session in August and monthly/bi-monthly half-day sessions in the Fall. Any current or incoming Hartnell students as well as local high school students who have an interest in agriculture are welcome to attend, free of charge.
