    Vt. college gets $3.4 million boost to aid agriculture program

    US Labor Secretary Hilda Solis toured a dairy farm and apple orchard at Vermont Technical College in Randolph to highlight a training program to support agricultural businesses. Vermont Tech is getting a $3.4 million federal grant for training programs for state industries that support agriculture, food production, waste disposal, and energy production. Officials said the grant will allow Vermont Tech to improve its degree and college-level certificates and help meet trade employment needs throughout the state. Solis was joined Tuesday by Governor Peter Shumlin and members of Vermont’s congressional delegation.
