Urban Agriculture and Food Justice

This course takes an ecosystem approach to the study of urban food production through its intersections with social, cultural, and political dimensions of the urban environment. "Urban Agriculture and Food Justice" examines 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.

The course also surveys the technical aspects of ecologically-based horticulture. These include garden design, soil properties and fertility, pest and disease management, plant propagation, composting techniques, and irrigation systems. This provides a foundation to study emerging trends in urban agriculture, from rooftop gardens to aquaponics.

This course includes twelve weeks of live webinars that will happen between September 1 and November 23, 2019. Those who sign up for the course will choose times for webinars that best fit their schedules. The Cooperative New School offers these courses on a sliding scale so that you may pay the amount that is comfortable for you. However, the more you give, the better our economic sustainability. After you choose the tier that you are able to pay, you will then have the option to pay right away or pay later through donations to the Cooperative New School. This course is facilitated by Paul Rogé. Please write to Paul with any questions you may have.
