Food Systems Northwest: Circuits of Soil, Labor and Money

Experiential course explores connections between food and larger environmental and social systems
University Business, September 2014

Team-taught this summer by professors from three Northwest Five Consortium institutions; students from any of the five member schools could register

Eating food is critical to everyday life, and yet many have the luxury to treat daily sustenance as an afterthought. For some, the connections between food and the larger environmental and social systems that sustain human life are largely invisible.

This experiential course explores these interactions through an extensive and intensive investigation of the Northwest food system from farm to fork. For three weeks, the course travels among the campuses of Whitman College (Wash.), the University of Puget Sound (Wash.) and Willamette University (Ore.) tracing the themes of soil, labor and money across the Northwest foodscape.
