Our Home, Our Food, Our Resilience: A Citizen Science Approach to Food Asset Mapping and Ecological Heritage Planning in Canada Current
April, 2019 – 2021

I am a Co-PI in an innovative SSHRC-funded project to map racialized and informal food spaces, culturally and ecologically important food infrastructures, and the historical landscapes within which these spaces thrive in Metro Vancouver, Port Alberni and Terrace, British Columbia. The PI is Dr Tammara Soma (PI) and another Co-PI is Dr Dana Lepofsky, both of Simon Fraser University (SFU). This project is being carried out in collaboration with Indigenous and Local Community partners in all three locations. Ms Meagan Curtis, UBC doctoral student under my supervision, is taking the lead on the fieldwork in Port Alberni.
