Here is the brief presentation (with some minor revisions) I gave yesterday in the University of Alberta “Environmentally Sustainable Agriculture” class. The assignment was to choose an agriculture system or strategy and discuss if it is sustainable. I used the presentation as an opportunity to share my research and also share a very simplified version of the ideas and debates I have been wrestling with during the past few months as I’ve delved into my research.
Please keep in mind this is a very quick overview of some complex debates. If you would like any clarification on any of the ideas presented here, or want to agree or disagree with me, please leave a comment. I encourage discussion!
