Kim Irving

Program: Urban Agriculture

Kim Irving loves her veggies.She’s a student in CCC’s new Urban Agriculture program, and is gaining real-life experience as an urban farmer. She and her classmates are learning how to grow and harvest vegetables using certified organic methods.

The produce Kim and her classmates grow is sold at a small farmer’s market they hold on campus. Proceeds go toward student scholarships, and the left over produce goes to students and local food banks. Fresh lettuce, snow peas and herbs were available on the produce cart at the class’s first farmer’s market held in July. Tomatoes, eggplant, squash, potatoes, carrots, chard, cucumbers and other veggies will be added to the market selection as they ripen.

Many students, like Kim, are turning to Clackamas Community College to get the hands-on training they need for a job or new career.
