Students at Ecolibrium Farm in Woodinville, WA

Kristi Park and Tim Lehman on L ARCH 502A The Farm Studio

The “Farm Studio” included an in-depth look at food cultivation focused on a peri-urban, 12 acre site in Woodinville, WA. Students were given the freedom to deep dive on many topics related to the food systems including community building, equitable access to food, public policy, land-use law,  agricultural education, and climate resilience.  This course also explored the journey of food systems from a global perspective investigating everything from child-labor involved in the production of chocolate to water-rights and social injustices resulting in crops such as avocados.
