This faculty-led 15-day study tour will take students through the North Island of New Zealand. We will survey and learn about New Zealand’s natural beauty, culture and agriculture. We will view and discuss a wide range of topics including sustainable horticultural and agricultural production, environmental conservation, Maori culture, farmer’s markets and of course Hobbiton. Agriculture in New Zealand is incredibly diverse and we will be seeing vegetables, dairy, avocados, kiwifruit, vineyards, apples, honey, sheep, beef, and well as value-added production at a winery and craft brewery. We’ll explore natural and agricultural landscapes, learning about the unique wildlife and connecting it all to the rich geographical, historical and cultural heritage of this incredible country. Students with an interest in agriculture, environmental stewardship, natural resources and renewable energy, and how culture is entwined through all these activities, will benefit from this unique and rewarding study travel experience.

Callout: January 31st at 5:00 pm in Hort 222
