Agriculture is a central human endeavor connected to everything we care about on the planet: human and ecosystem health, food, water, nature, markets and trade, culture, art, power, energy, communities, climate change, and social justice. This course introduces students to principles and practices of sustainable agriculture through reading, writing, discussion, field exercises, and a final project. Students develop an intellectual foundation for the study of agriculture as well as some hands-on farming skills at the College Farm and Garden.Prerequisite: ENS 1150 Perspectives in Environmental Studies.
