Community co-learning through food gardening


Food gardens are powerful co-learning spaces in which diverse knowledges, skills and strengths can be harnessed and intersected to grow stronger communities and more sustainable food futures.  This program of research employs community partnering, inquiry-based learning, action research and multidisciplinary methods to investigate community co-learning approaches to developing food gardening programs. It intersects school education and community education efforts.
