HORT 483 – Case Studies in Urban Agriculture (3)

Provides an overview of the diversity of endeavors that are available to potential urban agriculturists. These include urban and peri-urban farms (for profit and non-profit), community and school gardens, controlled climate facilities, rooftop farms and gardens, and more. For each case study, we will specifically examine: (1) the market where the farmer sells goods, (2) methods of achieving growth, particularly while avoiding debt, (3) increasing livelihood reliance upon on-farm income. This course may be subject to Enforced Prerequisites that restrict registration into the course. Check the offerings below for more information.
