Working to Build & Understand Food System Resilience, 2011-2014

I am very excited to be leading a SSHRC funded project on community  and regional food networks. I am also the co-applicant with Karen Landman at the University of Guelph on a related OMAFRA grant.  Together these two projects bring together eight Ontario universities, nine NGOs, four government offices and one international university partner.  The core research group includes nine faculty and fifteen students.  The advisory group provides input throughout the project and includes twenty members (thirteen from universities, five from government and two from NGOs). We are all working to build and understand food system resilience.
