Students will leave with a greater understanding of traditional agriculture, sustainable agriculture and cultural interactions surrounding food and agricultural systems. Sustainable resource themes of understanding included: Elements of Agriculture, Sustainable Agriculture, Agricultural Production, Agricultural Supports and Challenges, and Coastal First Nations Ethno-Botany. Read more.
