The University of New Hampshire's vanguard EcoGastronomy Program nourishes the minds of environmentally-conscious students who are passionate about sustainable food practices. Part of the curriculum involves visiting farms and working within greenhouses, but the apex of the major is a trip to the University of Gastronomical Sciences in Italy.

Courses offered within the EcoGastronomy Program at the University of New Hampshire include "Sustainable Food Production," "Nutrition in Health and Well Being" and "Food and Society." I can't think of a better way to foster interest in local, organic food and simultaneously inspire more widespread sustainable farming practices.
