Urban Ag: Fall

This is an introductory course to the art, science and practical implementation of community gardening techniques. Students will join the urban farming movement in an effort to learn where our food comes from, how a small-scale farm can impact the community, and to change our role in the food system from consumer to producer. Based on direct work at the student garden, through research, field trips, and readings, students will draft a proposal for how to increase productivity in the student garden whether through community outreach, a special project, or a custom-built design for the garden.
