Urban Food Book Chapter

As a few of you may know, I’ve been working on a PhD in geography part time for 3 years now. I’m mostly interested in traditional agriculture – the kind we were practicing for thousands of years before modern industrial, chemical agriculture. Strangely enough it’s usually called “alternative” agriculture, though with a thousand-plus year head start, I’d say anything else is alternative.

Regardless, for my final three course hours Dr. Hagelman and Dr. Cade gave me the great opportunity to help write a college text book chapter on local food networks. The book is being published by Francis and Taylor on urban agriculture, a topic I love, so I jumped in. I finished my draft two days after my self-imposed Thanksgiving break deadline. I was pretty happy with the results.

It’s in the process of being edited and I’ll update everyone as soon as I know more.

What’s this have to do with the Web? I’m sure it will be a digital text book as I had to provide a companion Powerpoint for teachers 🙂
