About this Unit
This unit is designed to strengthen student understanding of the important interactions between food, agriculture, environment and health. Traditionally the topics of food, agriculture, environment and health have been taught mainly in isolation from each other. It is becoming increasingly apparent that this traditional approach bears little relevance to real world issues and in some cases acts as an impediment to progress. Alternatives to the current ‘western industrialised’ food production system will be explored. These include organic agriculture, local farmer markets, and consumer driven changes to food production systems.
