    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it because the course focuses on how to transform the food system while at the same time analyzing the failings of the contemporary food system. It has a hands-on component of joining a transformative food project or starting one of your choice.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about how activism should not be limited to individual purchasing decisions because this condition is not common to all, and transformative food movements should be democratic. I learned about the food sovereignty movement, put forth by the group La Via Campesina, who advocate for the equitable rights of the peoples to resources and their autonomy to choose their means of production as an alternative to the agribusiness model of the contemporary food system.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read carefully and mindfully, strive to understand every term you are not familiar with. Make summaries of the readings and reflect on them.
