Program Description

Although the recent surge in attention to food and agriculture feels like the latest trend, a stream of research exists and informs us about how our systems of cultural practices inform food production. We examine how culture, agriculture, and tourism intersect in South Africa. We do this by studying the relationships that exist between peoples and plants. The focus of our Study Abroad program is to introduce participants to agriculture in South Africa and its rich history of horticulture crop production, natural plant products and agritourism.
