THE ALISAL CAMPUS
Hartnell’s Alisal Campus is a state-of-the-art campus rebuilt in 2006 at the request and support of industry.  The campus features smart classrooms, conference rooms, clean/dirty classroom laboratories, computer laboratories, and numerous hands-on technical shops dedicated to agriculture related trades all of which contribute to the overall food safety culture in production, handling, storage, and transportation agribusinesses. Adjacent to the campus are both the UCDavis Cooperative Extension and an USDA-ARS Laboratory.  

INDUSTRY ADVISORY COMMITTEES
Over 200 agribusiness employees and entrepreneurs generously volunteer their time and expertise to help guide the Ag Institute and each of the core programs within the Center for Advanced Technology.  Their input is vital to Hartnell offering the curriculum, internships, and skills necessary to employment in or running a business in Monterey County.  

MONTEREY COUNTY 
Surrounding the Alisal Campus within a 60 minute radius is the core of the $4 billion leafy greens and fresh fruit/vegetable produce industry which offers a plethora of opportunities for guest speakers, adjunct faculty, classroom field trips, and internships.  Instruction is held at the Hartnell Alisal Campus, the Hartnell King City Education Center, and numerous local sites (e.g. King City, Soledad, Rancho Cielo).
