FREE, online course due to launch on Monday 23rd September 2019, called: “Explore how farmers produce food sustainably”, which is designed to give consumers a better understanding of EU farming systems and primary food production processes. This three-week course will enable learners to gain a better understanding of processes used by farmers and primary producers which we hope will lead to increased empathy with the challenges farmers face and consumers will feel more personally invested in the food choices they make. In addition, it will also increase awareness on innovative technologies to enhance sustainability. Simona Grasso, is leading the programme and has been working with colleagues at Reading, the University of Hohenheim, Koppert, and John Deere to develop a variety of learning materials and activities that introduce participants to basic principles of arable crop, horticulture, and animal production. So, if you want to gain a better understanding of processes used by farmers and primary producers and increase your awareness on innovative technologies to enhance sustainability – this is the course for you!
