Farming and Food Justice | Guerin Catholic High School


Farming and Food Justice
Grades 10-12
1 credit
Prerequisite: none

Farming and Food Justice is a practicum-based course for Guerin Catholic’s school farm, which invites students and the community into ecological education, sustainable food systems, and food justice. Students can expect to do hands-on farm work while learning the theological, ecological, scientific, and business basics that underlie running a small vegetable farm. The course will emphasize Christian teachings like care for creation, preferential option for the poor and vulnerable, solidarity, and the dignity of human work. Most class periods will be spent outside on the Farm in nature’s classroom, working in the soil and growing delicious food.
