Going Green: Agriculture & Recycling

Watch degrees that work: Going Green

About this episode

"Green jobs" is more than a buzz term. It’s a reality that offers tremendous promise for our future. Pennsylvania reveals that promise with its Green Jobs Report, which identifies five green industry sectors employing individuals throughout the state and nation. This episode of degrees that work.tv examines two of the sectors: Agriculture and Resource Conservation and Pollution Prevention and Environmental Cleanup. From farm to plate, the effort of a committed sustainable farmer to produce lettuce is documented, and the viability of careers in sustainable agriculture is explored. A trip to the recycling center in Pennsylvania’s largest county reveals opportunities and challenges in the Pollution Prevention and Environmental Cleanup sector. The episode also includes a look at how colleges are incorporating green to better prepare students for an exciting future.
