The mission of the Center for Agroecology & Sustainable Food Systems is to research, develop, and advance sustainable food and agricultural systems that are environmentally sound, economically viable, socially responsible, non-exploitative, and that serve as a foundation for future generations. The Center produces a variety of publications for researchers, farmers, students, educators, and home gardeners. Much of this material, including a Sustainable Agriculture Curriculum, is available for free download
. It includes materials on how to connect college food systems with local farmers.
