Colorado

Urbanism and equity in growing population centers

How we eat, what we eat, and where our food comes from are complex and inextricably linked questions in the U.S. We explore Denver’s new urbanism against the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains and how access to food is linked to socioeconomic status, geography, race and health.

Learning objectives

Students gain a deeper appreciation of farming by working to maintain crops, supporting distribution to local grocery stores, and participating in community space operations.
Students build an understanding of the complexity of food systems and the challenges to food equity in Colorado through the juxtaposition of rural and urban food systems.
Students better understand the challenges of land and water rights and the effects of population surge on wildlife and conservation.

  • Farm immersion on aquaponics, indoor farming, and food distribution
