Supporting Community Revitalization through Community Garden Projects in Indiana, Pennsylvania
The central focus of the 2014 ATP project was to partner with the ICG in order to meet two goals: coordinate programs that enhance the cultural and biological diversity of the garden; and create educational resources that assist the garden in its mission to be a hub for educating people about sustainable practices and global food issues. Students divided into groups that tackle these goals through projects designed in collaboration with the community partner and informed by our environmental anthropology course content. Although students worked on different projects, they conducted ethnographic and ethnoecological research that will ultimately contribute to a compendium of educational resources for the garden, including on-site signage and online resources.
