What students are saying
My whole perspective about food changed so much after taking this class. I started my very own vegetable bed in my backyard...my lifestyle changed after learning about agroecological farming.
...an excellent tool for deciding what path I should take within the food system. I'm going to use the resources I now know about to supplement a business degree with classes in sustainable agriculture.
