Round Two of the Field School

We are a group of 14 undergrad and graduate students, plus instructors from numerous departments and programs, who will spend the month of June traveling around New Mexico learning about food systems and the food value chain. Our interests run the gamut from biology, geography and nutrition to political science, environmental planning and media arts. However, food is the great integrator: our passion for sustainable food systems that are environmentally, socially and economically healthy unites us in a common mission to experience our state’s foodshed firsthand. We’ll learn from a variety of agricultural mentors, challenge ourselves to ask tough questions and propose solutions, dream up new career paths, and hopefully have a little fun along the way!

We’ll spend the first week in the Albuquerque area, splitting our time between on-campus exercises and off-campus field trips. The second week we will travel through the Pecos Watershed. The Four Corners region will be our destination for the third week, and the Taos area for the last. Follow our adventures as we explore 25 diverse sites in the state.
