Urban Agriculture and Food Justice

This course takes an ecosystem approach to the study of urban gardens with an organic perspective. The course also studies how urban food production interacts with social, cultural, and political dimensions of the urban environment.

 

Topics include fundamentals of horticulture, soil properties and fertility, pest and disease management, and food preservation. Laboratories include methods in garden design, plant propagation, compost technique, soil preparation, irrigation systems, pest management, individual or group projects, demonstrations, and discussions.

We examine the historic and contemporary forces driving urban agriculture, and the ways that it contributes to processes of gentrification, food security, biodiversity, energy conservation, job creation, human health, and well being. We also discuss the importance of urban agriculture for food and restorative justice movements..

Live webinars for this course will happen on Fridays from 6:30-8:30 pm Central (US) between August 23 to December 6, 2018. This course is taught by Paul Rogé. Please write to Paul with any questions you may have.
