Food Loss in Vermont

Food Loss in Vermont
In this course we will study agricultural food loss in Vermont. We will look at how federal and state policies affect the production and distribution of Vermont-grown food. Students will learn directly from non-profit leaders, government officials, food system researchers, and farmers. In this course students will also learn how to conduct standardized survey interviews, a data collection method often used in the social sciences. Students will have the opportunity to apply their new knowledge from this course to a real-world project for Salvation Farms, a Vermont-based nonprofit that works to build a sustainable food system and reduce agricultural food loss. This course counts as an ENVS social science cognate
