CVFN 411 Dimensions of Urban Agriculture


Certificate Credit
Community Services Program Area


Duration: 39 Hours
Fee: $608.83* (Payment in full is required at time of enrolment.)
Available through Distance Education


This course describes the dimensions (functions, roles, benefits, potential risks) of urban agriculture and how these complement, supplement, compete with, substitute for, or undermine those provided by other land uses, sectoral activities and actors. The main dimensions covered are: health and food security, socio-cultural dimensions, economic dimensions, and environmental dimensions. Two well-documented case studies will be used throughout the course to highlight each dimension separately, before bringing them all together.

Note: This course has been developed in partnership with ETC-Urban Agriculture (ETC-UA) and the Resource Centre on Urban Agriculture and Food Security (RUAF), with technical support provided by The Chang School.

This course is part of a portfolio of four distance education courses on urban agriculture, including the following: CVFN 410, CVFN 411, CVFN 412, and CVFN 413. These courses comprise a course series; students who complete all four courses will receive a Professional Development Award. For more information, visit Course Series in Urban Agriculture.
