Farm Land Policy: Online Class from Just Food Now
Just Food Now is offering a NEW online class in farm land policy this summer. Bob Wagner is a Senior Policy Analyst for American Farmland Trust and has a lot of experience in this work.
This course will provide students with an opportunity to explore the political, economic and societal forces that influence land use decisions, an understanding of the history of land use policies and planning in the U.S. as they relate to agriculture, a working knowledge of current land use policies and programs tied to agriculture and farming, and an opportunity through case studies to dissect and debate land use issues and conflicts surrounding agriculture.
