Kentucky is what makes this Vermont school ‘cool’ – seriously

Kentucky Sterling College

When Sierra magazine listed the 20 coolest “green” colleges, Kentucky enjoyed a shoutout even without a college on the list. That’s because Henry County plays a key role in a sustainable agriculture degree offered at Vermont’s Sterling College.

Sterling has been partnering with The Berry Center in Kentucky since 2012, but this fall is starting a full-time undergraduate program for 12 juniors in New Castle. The center’s mission is to preserve the legacy of author, farmer and activist Wendell Berry.

More than half of the first cohort are from Kentucky. The students attend tuition free through a $3.5 million grant.
