High-Tech Sustainability: Food for Thought

A.J. Both (Environmental Science)

We all need (and love) to eat. But do you ever stop and think: how is your food produced and where does it come from? How can we maintain a safe and year-round supply? In this course, we will look at ways in which we can use technology to create more sustainable systems of agriculture. In particular, we will investigate the challenges and opportunities associated with greenhouse production. Students will be exposed to greenhouse crop production, review and discuss the necessary inputs required for greenhouse production, complete a writing assignment and make their own presentation discussing a topic related to greenhouse production.
