Small Farming at Pitt
I did my undergrad at Pitt. I loved it. It's a wonderful school in a very cool American city. While in the 60's and 70's, it may have had its problems with factory pollution, today's Pittsburgh is a charming city comprised of dozens of small and unique neighborhoods each marked by its own architecture, personality and history. The city is full of green spaces. Needless to say, I was not suprised to read this article about the University of Pittsburgh's new program designed to encourage Pitt students and PA entrepreneurs to consider the business opportunities found in small-farms. Ann Dugan, the driving force behind Pitt's Agricultural Entrepreneurship Program is a great champion of helping small, medium and family businesses grow to their fullest potential. (I was lucky enough to intern in her office during college). Enjoy the article. I know it makes me proud to hail from Pitt!
