Millennium Fellowship Project: Gardening for Food System Resilience
As a part of an ongoing research project, Elise will be distributing a survey to backyard gardeners and completing a spatial analysis of potential at-home food production in Greenville Country. The survey hopes to expand on how gardening shapes local food systems, and explores how gardening activities may connect with food purchasing habits and affect personal values. By November, the Fellow will have a final draft ready for publication, host a virtual presentation of my findings with gardeners who participated in the survey, and share an actionable proposal with the city of Greenville which hopes to articulate the far-reaching benefits of empowered at-home food production for community resilience.
