R 900-1500, TW 900-1200
The course will provide students with a foundational understanding of the environmental, economic, and societal impacts of American food systems and sustainable agriculture. Through assigned reading, lectures, class discussion, and field trips, students will learn about the American farming and food system through examination of one particular crop or product at a time. We will consider environmental inputs and outputs, economic profitability, and farm stewardship. We will also look at the food distribution system and our role as consumers.
