Redesigning Farming is an introductory course that will explore the idea of growing and distributing fresh food in urban communities. This course will examine the barriers between the agricultural past and urban present for people of color and will look at the contributions of resistance movements which have given rise to cooperative farming and unionized labor in marginalized populations. Additionally we will explore the role of technology in growing food safely in urban environments. Ultimately this course will explore the need to re-brand farming / urban agriculture as a new opportunity to contribute to healthy living spaces in urban neighborhoods.
