This lesson is an investigation of sustainable farming by looking two case studies, one of cocoa farming on the Ivory Coast and one from a farm in NSW. Students learn about how eating seasonable produce is good for the environment and use websites to think about their own sustainable eating habits. The geographical tool of visual representations is used.
The geographical concepts addressed are place, space, environment and interconnection.
