This is the Food Systems Blog of the University of Massachusetts Online Sustainable Agriculture Class.  Throughout the semester, students will make blog posts about agriculture in their communities.  First, they will introduce themselves, their definitions of sustainable agriculture, and their community’s agricultural resources. Later in the semester, each student will complete a Mind Map of agriculture in their community or of a particular farm system that they choose.  Students will study holistic management of their community food system.  From their mind map, each student will select an aspect to focus on, and conduct several case-studies on the issue.  Please follow our blog to learn about agricultural issues in several communities from multiple perspectives.  Enjoy!
