The time is ripe to be part of the growing sustainable food movement! This class addresses the current food issues that face urban citizens by holistically engaging students in the many layers of Portland's local food and farm culture.  Students will critically analyze the state of our current food systems while being engaged in positive solutions to agricultural-related issues. The community partner and classroom is JEAN's Urban Educational Farm, where students will gain hands-on farming experience, experientially explore their personal connection to food and the land, participate in the JEAN's farm educational programs, and positively contribute to food security in our greater community.
