“The program is really geared towards giving all the information one needs to start a vertical farm without much prior farming experience. I love to have the ability to go at my own pace and the wealth of information the courses contain.”

“Insanely valuable, specific, detailed information, delivered in a way that absolutely anyone can grasp. This service stands on its own. Nowhere else is there anything even close enough to compare it to! If you have any intention of getting into aquaponics or hydroponics on any scale or level, USU will spare you some very common and costly mistakes and put you in the fast-lane towards successful start-up.”

“It is well organized to help make logical steps toward farming. The information is in small clips for those with busy lives and also makes it easier to absorb the information. The instructors are readily available for questions and office hours make it easy to interact with them as well.”
