CSS 224: Sustainable Farm & Food System Field Course

SAFS offers a 3-credit project-based capstone course that guides students through the process of making a real product or event that fosters a more sustainable food system future. Students experience the research process and realize their agency in creating the pathway to our future goals. The course emphasizes community engagement and interdisciplinary group learning. Each student will be part of a small group working on a semester-long specific project, and interacting with various experts as part of the Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Seminar Series. Graduate students are welcome.
