It serves as the scientific basis for devising more natural, less environmentally harmful farming practices that build soil fertility and plant resilience while maintaining adequate production levels. The goal of this course is to introduce students to a broad suite of sustainable agriculture principles and practices and to investigate the scienti?c basis for those practices. Students will learn agroecology techniques by actually practicing them in the campus Learning Garden.
