Dr. Amy E. Potter: Using Food Security in Geography 1100: World Regional Geography at Armstrong State University part of The Wicked Problem of Global Food Security

I ran the module the last three weeks of the semester as a culmination of some of the human/cultural themes we discussed throughout the class with the exciting insertion of earth systems.
