Exploring Local Food Systems

Exploring Food Systems—Middlebury, Vermont
In this course we explore ways that activities across the food system from production (and fish capture) through waste disposal affect ecological integrity, individual and public health, community well-being, and society’s potential to meet human needs for food and adequate nutrition now and in the future. We combine current and background readings; discussion; field trips to visit innovative Vermont food system projects attempting to improve environmental, social, economic and health impacts; and group work on a project relevant to Middlebury’s food system
