change 'courses taught schedule' and 'schedule types.'

This course is scheduled for first offering in Spring 2020 but I am unsure if the college will change the term after that.

Proposal ID: 106842
Type: New Course
Submission Date: June 17, 2019 2:55pm
Effective Term: Fall 2019
The global human population is becoming increasingly urban. The study of agricultural production, as applied in urban areas, is needed in order to effectively produce food in these environments. Demand for food is expected to increase amidst challenges from changing climates, water scarcity, and loss of agricultural land. Examining these issues in urban systems is key to understand this growing frontier in food production. Urban systems are vastly different than traditional agricultural environments and are unlikely to excel if relying solely upon inappropriate knowledge and research. This course is intended for students interested in producing food within an urban environment.
This program and its required classes will be 100% attainable via online learning.

this Course:

The purpose of this course is to provide an overview of the diversity of endeavors that are available to potential urban agriculturists. These include urban and peri-urban farms (for profit and non-profit), community and school gardens, controlled climate facilities, rooftop farms and gardens, and more. For each case study, we will specifically examine: (1) the market where the farmer sells goods, (2) methods of achieving growth, particularly while avoiding debt, (3) increasing livelihood reliance upon on-farm income.
