The Rise and Future of the Food Movement

Edible Education 101 is offered in Spring, 2014 at UC Berkeley. Tracing the food system through the rise of industrial agriculture at home and abroad, the twelve week course will introduce students to some current and controversial ideas about the future of food, through conversations with some of the leaders of the food movement in Berkeley, the United States, and around the world. This course will enlist the skills of economists, agronomists, activists, biologists, farmers, chefs, diplomats, workers, entrepreneurs, parents, poets, and citizens to explain both how food systems work, and how they might be changed.
