Project Overview

This student-created magazine was the result of a trimester’s learning about food systems. Fueled by their own personal “fierce wondering,” students became experts about their topic and supported one another through the researching and writing process.

Organized into sections of “Food Systems 101,” “Plants and Bugs,” “Food Justice,” “Food Choices,” and “Food Waste,” this magazine is an inspirational resource and model.
