About PSS 295 Z1

Agroecology offers crucial tools for farmers, advocates and planners to transform food systems for sustainability and resilience. This year’s shortcourse seeks to deepen participants’ understanding of agroecology’s dimensions as a science, practice and movement. By drawing on the experiences of participants from all over the world, this course will introduce key principles of agroecology and examine pathways to more resilient agrifood systems at a local, regional, and international scale. Classes and field activities will be held at the University of Vermont, situated in the heart of the Champlain Valley offering participants a unique opportunity to experience Vermont’s vibrant, local food and agriculture systems. The course will be led by three generations of agroecologists that represent multiple areas of expertise, including Stephen R. Gliessman, V. Ernesto Méndez, and Roseann Cohen.
