Description

Date: Thur., 9/13-12/20 Plus 1 Wed.
Time: 3-6 PM
Room: 100
Instructor: Laura Mack
Credit: 1 Science OR 1 English

Course Description: All humans must eat to survive. Despite this necessity, many of us have a limited understanding of food sources and the influences of food production methods. This
course will explore the importance of soil, plant and animal production, and the tremendous amount of change that has occurred in farming since the 1960’s. One area
of focus will be new ways of creating sufficient food, such as aquaponics. Students will have an opportunity to examine and critique the arguments made by experts
about food and food production, as well as explore their own ideas and develop their own arguments. We will also make a personal connection with food and farming
with hands-on activities at a local farm, in our KHS classroom greenhouse, and through visits to other local food distributors and producers. (1 Science OR 1 English
Credit).
