Food/Cooking/Sustainability crash course

I may have an opportunity to teach a ten week class to ninth graders about food, cooking, and sustainability. These are topics that interest me and that I pursue in my spare time, but I'm realizing I don't know as much as I thought I did-- what books, resources, concepts do I need to study in order to get a real grasp on this so I can teach it well?

The class will have access to a garden and a teaching kitchen. The content of the course is largely up to me. I've read the Omnivore's Dilemma
and looked at Alice Waters' Edible Schoolyard
website. What else should I do to prepare? What content should I be sure to include in the course?
