Action research is a methodology for learning while doing and food sovereignty is the practice of self-determination in food systems. Food sovereignty projects solve food insecurity by empowering communities and individuals to produce their own culturally appropriate food and medicine. The class will split into affinity groups, each working on different food sovereignty related projects. The class as a whole will meet to discuss literature on action research methodologies and food sovereignty. Community engagement projects include working with the Purple Carrot Farm on campus, an Abenaki seed saving project, and other projects that can be safely carried out in light of COVID-19.
