Description

Due to urbanization and industrialization, the American public is becoming increasingly detached from the sources of its food and fiber. When asked where milk comes from, some children reply “the grocery store.” Service courses in agriculture and natural resources are an opportunity for natural resource educators to help students make these connections and to inform students about the trade-offs involved in the production of the food and fiber upon which they rely. This can help to produce consumers who can make educated decisions about their consumption.
