The Little Mountain Riley Park Neighbourhood Food Network (LM-RP NFN) is building a new community garden and has two goals for a student project: to determine the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to food production in LM-RP and to identify what current gardeners and urban food producers envision for the new garden. The two main tasks for students working on this project are to develop, implement and analyze a survey of LM-RP gardeners, and to review the BC school curriculum to identify how gardening education can be integrated. While some work can be done remotely, students will be expected to visit various community centres, neighbourhood houses, schools and gardens in LM-RP some evenings and to participate in the Sustenance Festival on Sunday October 18. This project is especially relevant for students majoring in food and the environment or plant science and/or who want to learn more about urban agriculture, food environments, and education. For this project, you need to be knowledgeable about growing food and able to create and use a survey. Throughout the project, you’ll learn about asset mapping, the BC curriculum and successful community garden models.
