The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant negative impact on many local farming operations in South Florida. Consumers and producers are welcome to join our Facebook group FIU COVID-19 Local Food System Response for updates on local farms, available produce, contact information, relief programs, online resources and other forms of support.
Our innovative, science-based curricular program lets students focus on issues in agriculture at the farm, community and regional landscape level. Students and participants are exposed to an intellectual learning environment and to agricultural agencies and research institutions such as the USDA's Agricultural Research Service, along with other research and educational organizations.
Students explore broad spatial agricultural issues including regional water allocation conflicts, urban-rural conflicts, community foodsheds, and geospatial analysis of agricultural resources and system impacts.
