Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course was a great introduction into renewable resources and sustainable farming. From this one course I was able to determine the path I wanted to ultimately take degree and career wise. The professor is very knowledgeable, straightforward, and easy to work with.
This course taught a lot about sustainable agriculture and how it is the new way of doing things. Through this course I was able to understand that the old way of farming and ag were doing more harm than good to the earth and the environment. Sustainable farming and the use of renewable resources actually make sense from a long-term stand point. This course focused on those things that can be used to sustain a farm and keep it thriving for a long time. It also highlighted the ways in which we can help our environment heal by turning to renewable resources and utilizing them in productive ways. Lots of practical knowledge gained here.

Advice for students:
Be prepared to learn new things. Keep an open mind and be receptive to new ideas. The topics covered may differ from what you think you know about ag and farming. Take good notes and actually give thought to what you are learning as these things can be put into practical use.
