Dr. Kevin Cody
Sustainable food system education is at the core of my applied and academic work. In the academic context, agrarian political economy and the sociology of food and agriculture are the fields that guide my research and teaching in alternative food networks, sustainable development, and experiential education. My applied research focused on beginning farmers carries over into the non-profit arena where I work on improving the sustainability of regional food systems and the farmers on which these systems depend.
Working with students on research and community engaged projects to
build more sustainable food systems is central to my work as a
Professor of Practice, and as the Farmer Training Program Manager
with New Entry Sustainable Farming Project. Students I work with
have examined national trends among beginning farmers using USDA
census data, conducted evaluations of New Entry training programs,
and supported our work in the field teaching sustainable agriculture
and food systems. Ongoing projects focus on market access for
small-scale farms, program evaluation, and on-farm training and
education in organic horticulture and sustainable food system.
