Summary and Final Tasks
In the following modules, you will be learning about aspects of natural systems within human-natural food systems that support food production. As you pursue your learning about these natural systems, keep in mind that natural systems (freshwater resources, soil, the oceans, and the atmosphere) within food systems are always interacting with human systems components (knowledge, management, and policies for example).
Reminder - Complete all of the Module 1 tasks!
You have reached the end of Module 1! Double-check the to-do list on the Module Roadmap to make sure you have completed all of the activities listed there before you begin Module 2.
