The option explores the broad field of sustainable farming and food systems. It provides students with an interdisciplinary understanding of the ecological, economic, political, and social systems as they relate to food and farming. Through additional applied courses and internships, students learn hands-on skills such as food cultivation, preservation, processing, techniques for propagation, and season-extension, and design of annual and perennial production systems. Students engage in community partnerships and participate in bioregional efforts to support food security, local economies, and planning for resiliency.
