During the 2008-2009 Academic Year, Professors Jenn Halpin (The College Farm, Environmental Studies) and Susan Rose (Sociology) offered an ethnographic field course addressing sustainable agricultural systems and cooperative movements.

Students took a ½ credit course in the fall with Halpin and Rose, studying the concept of sustainability from both agricultural and economic / political / development perspectives. They examined sustainable agricultural practices in both the U.S. and Venezuela, the Bolivarian process, and the cooperative and mission movements in contemporary Venezuela.
