This course investigates the principles and practices of sustainable agriculture and their relationship to the greater food system. We will explore the social (people), environmental (planet), and economic (profit) impacts of agriculture — from challenges to opportunities. This course applies the principles of sustainability to various agricultural production practices and systems — at a range of different scales — to see what lessons these varied models can offer. Along the way, we will consider domestic issues such as food safety and distribution, food justice, cultural relevance, biodiversity, farming communities, and effects on local economies. The course combines seminars and lectures with extensive, hands-on field experiences and service-learning at the Kate Chandler Campus Community Farm (K3CF). Prerequisite: ENST100 or permission from the instructor. Co-requisite: ENST 391L.
