ENST 070 - Practicing Sustainable Urban Agriculture


This course introduces students to the foundations of sustainable urban agriculture through active participation in the campus garden lab. Students will learn how to build healthy soil (including composting and vermiposting), use low-water irrigation techniques, propagate plants, cultivate fruits and vegetables, save seeds, and will be introduced to sustainable modes of disease and pest management. The class meets once a week, has required readings and will ask students to contribute one additional hour of work in the garden lab per week. This course is a pre-requisite for participation in urban agriculture internships.
