Summer in the Garden

Summer in the GardenThis growing season I’m spending time with gardeners in the greater Toronto area for my PhD research project. I’m studying how growing food in the city influences the way people understand health and well-being. I also want to understand how what happens in the world around us influences how we grow food. The goal of my research is to better understand how we relate to nature in the city.

Already I’ve learned so much from the research participants who’ve allowed me to speak with them and visit their gardens.

Happy growing!
