Archi's Acres Partnership with Cal Poly Pomona


Tucked away on a former avocado ranch in the hills of Escondido is a converted barn where students — many of them veterans — participate in an intensive program that gives them the tools to become modern-day farmers.

The Sustainable Agriculture Training program (SAT), a partnership between Cal Poly Pomona and Archi’s Institute of Sustainable Agriculture, covers hydroponics, soil biology and greenhouse management. In addition, the program emphasizes problem-solving, leadership, and business plan development and implementation.
