Course Description: Food is a universal need, a requirement for all life, and an integral part of our daily routines. Food provides some of our greatest pleasures; lack of it can cause some of humanity’s greatest hardships. We can relate to each other, and learn about different cultures through engaging with how food is produced, consumed and shared. During this course, students will make observations and ask questions about where their food is sourced and will learn about patterns and systems in the natural world. Students will make inferences and justify conclusions of both historical and modern day agricultural practices.
At the end of this course, you will
•Know information about the history of agriculture and the basic principles of permaculture
•Be able to follow a recipe for meals from different cultures and historical time periods
•Understand the planning process in creating a functional permaculture system
