BIOL 009. Our Food

(Cross-listed as ENVS 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 scientific, humanitarian and sustainability perspectives, focusing on the U.S. Each student will grow crop plants and maintain a micro-garden plot on campus, as well as develop educational signage for the public that conveys information about agriculture, food systems and/or their crop. Three full hours of lecture/discussion/lab and one floating hour of fieldwork per week.
