Army veteran pursues new goals through Agriculture Technology program
ECTC student and Army veteran Ryan Gilbey’s interest in an Agriculture degree is driven by the desire to sustainably feed 40 people.
Gilbey started classes last spring and is holistically seeking the best ways to grow and produce food.
“When you produce your own food, you know what you’re eating, and you know what is eaten by what you’re eating,” Gilbey said. “I want to make sure that whatever animals I have are having the best life, which is not only humane but produces more and better-quality animal products. People want to know what they’re putting in their body.”
