Naugatuck Valley Community College is offering a course on cannabis production.
It's the state’s only community college that offers a degree in horticulture. The college has two campuses, one in Danbury and the other in Waterbury. Professor Christopher Tuccio says students will learn all aspects of cannabis production. They’ll have to learn about soil PH, plant nutrition, pest management and harvesting--and then grow the cannabis plant itself.
The course is currently a virtual offering, with a live lecture session via video. NVCC grads can transfer to UConn, the only college in the state with a bachelor’s degree in horticulture
15 students have signed up for the fall semester pilot course. .
