This run of the course is not being facilitated but you can still take advantage of the experience of other Learners. Why not take the time to read through the comments at the end of each Step and ‘follow’ Learners whose comments you agree with or find thought-provoking? You can then filter comments to select just those you follow to appear in your activity feed, which makes it easier not to miss them.


Now you’ve met the team and know what to expect from the course, we’d really like to meet you.

You will explore the concept of ‘sustainability’ throughout the course, but from what you understand now, how important is sustainability in your food buying decisions? What are you hoping to gain from the course?

Post your comments below. You can filter comments to see those that are ‘Most liked’ and find your own by selecting ‘My comments’.
