INAG123: People, Planet, and Profit: Digging Into Sustainable Agriculture

Course Description: 

Investigates the principles and practices of sustainable agriculture and their relationship to the greater food system. Explores the social (people), environmental (planet), and economic (profit) impacts of agriculture - from challenges to opportunities. INAG123 applies the principles of sustainability to various agricultural production practices and systems - at a range of different scales - to see what lessons these varied models can offer. Along the way, we will consider domestic issues such as food safety and distribution, food justice, cultural relevance, biodiversity, farming communities, and effects on local economies.
