Sustainable Agriculture

Added 08/06/2007
Primary Audience: High School , College General Ed This site has good information on sustainable agriculture practices. There are 5 modules with this site with activities for each module. The following key themes inform the whole curriculum: Sustainable agriculture addresses social, environmental, and economic impacts. Food system and agroecosystem analysis offer critical theoretical frameworks for understanding agriculture. Sustainable agriculture is defined and driven by goals. Practices are sustainable only insofar as they support those goals. Thus the same practice may be sustainable in one context and unsustainable in another. Real world examples provide the best opportunities for understanding the potential and the challenges of sustainable agriculture. The curriculum provides some case study examples, but teachers are strongly encouraged to introduce students to people engaged in sustainable agriculture or food businesses in their immediate area.
