LA 410/510

This experimental course considers civic agriculture and its connection to culture, cities, ecology and economics. Using case studies as context, we will investigate opportunities for sustainable local food systems to stabilize regional and local economies and combat climate change.

  1. I heard about this farmer on NPR the other day and got pretty excited about him. His name is Marcin Jakubowski, and he has started an initiative to open source the blue prints for 50 simplified, but vital, farm machines to make food production and other basic living necessities, such as shelter, more accessible to people. I thought that this was a good one to post after last week’s talk on neighborlyness (sharing and helping each other) and the expenses of large scale farming.

    People who share are awesome. Go, them.
