Inner City Farms, an urban farming social enterprise in Vancouver, would like to know more about the relationship between community members and nearby gardens. Students working on this project will interview and collect stories from landowners and community members about food system topics that touch on social, ecological and economic elements of urban agriculture. Interviewing will take place mainly in East Vancouver, near Hastings and Pandora (easily accessible by bus). This project is especially relevant for students majoring in plant science or food and the environment and/or who want to learn more about food environments, food sovereignty and urban agriculture. For this project, you need a solid understanding about sustainable food systems and the role of food in community development processes. Fluency in Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese and/or Punjabi is a major asset. Throughout the project, you’ll learn about qualitative data analysis and will develop cultural competence and communication.
