Urban Agriculture: Spring

This is the second semester of a year-long introductory course on the art, science and practical implementation of community garden design and techniques. In the first term students studied local community supported agriculture programs, analyzed different models for urban garden projects, and organized and held community garden design meetings. Based on research, field trips, first hand study of the university garden site and the hosting of university-wide meetings, students produced a draft proposal for the university garden at the end of the semester. In the spring semester students will implement the Community Garden design while simultaneously engaging in Service-Learning with non-profit organizations working on food security issues.
