My name is Cody Alba and I am currently going into my third year of Global Resource Systems in the faculty of Land & Food Systems. Having moved to Lima when I was three and growing up there until my return to Canada for university, Peru has been and will always be the country I call “home.” Over the years, I have become highly interested in the relationship between ecology and culture. Learning about people who have different values and beliefs stemming from their interactions with the Earth astonishes me. More recently, I have become curious with the idea of sustainable agriculture and therefore would like to learn more about the connection different cultures have with the Earth, specifically those from South America. I look forward to this class as I feel like it will provide me with a basic foundation of the history and development of the Latin American culture, allowing me to better understand its connection with nature.
