College students to learn the lay of the land in farming program

Many a farmer has learned their skills while tilling the ground in Henry County. Now Sterling College students will have an opportunity to earn a liberal arts degree while working in some of those same fields.
This collaboration between the The Berry Center, which maintains an archive of the writings of the influential family that helped craft the burley tobacco program, and the college based in Craftsbury Common, Vt., will merge classroom study with hands-on work in local forests and fields, according to Berry Center Director Mary Berry and farming program Director Leah Bayens.
