Person

Chad M Hellwinckel

Research Assc Professor | Agricultural and Resource Economics
Overview

I am working to get more people engaged in agriculture by increasing access to land and regenerative methods of production. Having more farmers working to feed themselves and nearby neighbors, towns, and cities will make us all more resilient to emerging system breakdowns.

Research Focus

Ongoing projects include: Agrarian Commons, community level composting, and regenerative education.

Teaching Focus

I teach a class in 'observation'. Between school, work, and endless amounts of entertainment we have little time for unrushed observation, which is essential to open creative space. This class reviews observation techniques and practices in field.
