Grow a Stronger Food System
Agroecology at UVM
Global weather patterns are shifting, millions are facing malnutrition and food insecurity, and earth’s natural resources are stressed. How do we grow food in a way that sustains our people and our planet?
Agroecology offers crucial concepts and tools for farmers, academics, and other actors to transform food systems for sustainability and resilience.
Responding to increasing demand for a deeper curriculum that focuses on all dimensions of agroecology, including its expressions as science, social movement, and practice, UVM offers a variety of options to prepare students to improve our food system.
