Food Justice & The Learning Gardens

Instructor Name: 
Amie Riley, Shevawn Armstrong
Course Description: 

This Capstone explores visions for a just food system that empowers all community members to have equitable access to healthful, nutritious and culturally appropriate foods, information and education about food systems, and land to grow, without exploitation and with a commitment to sustainability. Students will engage with readings, group discussions, group activities, and Capstone team project work, to investigate the concepts of sustainability, food justice, and food sovereignty. Through community-based learning with the PSU Learning Gardens Lab and the PSU Food Pantry, students may cultivate their relationship with the land while helping to grow food to support PSU food security efforts.
