DGES MA Candidates, Meaghan Kenny, Chris Bisson, and Sarah M.L. Walker recently completed a SSHRC-funded participatory action research “intervention” with Just Food Ottawa. Supervised by Dr. Patricia Ballamingie and Dr. Peter Andree, the research is part of a province-wide project, Building Regional Food Hubs in Ontario: Fostering linked-up thinking and practice through sustainable food systems(2011-2012) [led by PI, Alison Blay-Palmer (Wilfred Laurier University)]. Shown here at a 2011 Barn Warming event for Just Food, amongst other things, these dedicated interns helped to advance Just Food’s Community Food and Sustainable Agriculture Hub project.
