Edible Education 101: Spring 2018  

The food system is a complex web of interconnected relationships and disciplines. The way food tastes, how it is produced, distributed and eaten has everything to do with our personal-planetary health and sustainability. Edible Education 101 reveals the systematic links between agroecology, agronomy, anthropology, biology, business, economics, nutrition, philosophy, policy, sociology, technology and the arts. 

This year's offering of EE 101 will explore how greater transparency across the food system could play a role in creating a healthier, more sustainable, and more just food system.Learners also have an opportunity to experience the diverse disciplines and myriad career paths available to those desiring to impact the future of food in a meaningful way.
