Why Trent for Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems?
By studying sustainable agriculture, you can learn to create food systems that are responsible, justice-oriented, effective, and viable. In this program, you’ll examine the pathways between farm and table and their implications for people, the economy, and the planet.
The Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems (SAFS) program offers a wide range of food and agriculture-related courses, in both the Arts and Science streams. These courses are the product of collaboration by several departments, including Anthropology, Biology, Environmental Science/Studies, Geography, History, Indigenous Studies, International Development Studies and Political Studies. Through these courses the SAFS program, building on Trent's strengths in interdisciplinary education, challenges students to think critically about contemporary global food and agricultural systems while providing tools to effect change.
