    2. From Farm to Table- Follow the Food
    Follow a specific raw food from seed (or animal) to table, keeping in mind all of the resources needed to grow, breed, or maintain this food item. Don't forget about the water, land, farm products, buildings, and even the gasoline to transport the item to the store near you, and then to your table.

    3. Big Farm Practices ( Agribusiness) vs. Sustainable Farm Practices
    We've learned that large commercial farms rely on certain practices to increase productivity, which, in turn, increase profit. These practices include the use of hormones, antibiotics, and genetic modification. The small, sustainable farm won't be as profitable, but it does require a different type of technology. Discuss the overall task in cultivating a sustainable farm.
