ENVS 009. Our Food
(Cross-listed as BIOL 009 )
The scale and efficiency of our food system is one of the marvels of the modern world. Yet in many ways this system is broken. This course will address the current state of our agricultural food system from a scientific perspective, focusing on the U.S. Each student will grow and maintain a micro-garden plot as part of the class, as well as develop educational signage for the public that conveys information about agriculture or their crop. Three hours of lecture/discussion/lab and one floating hour of fieldwork per week. One field trip.
Eligible for ENVS.
