Welcome to the “Foodways and Foodscapes” website! In late 2010, Co/LAB began working to support food system change in San Diego with research. Soon after, we began developing interactive StoryMaps and participatory video-narratives. Today in 2013, co-researchers and partners continue to use these and other participatory research tools to grow new projects.
Explore the “pages” to the right to find out more about the Co-Researchers and Community Partners who embarked on the San Diego Community Food Stories Project journey as an exploration of collaborative ethnography. About Co/LAB describes the principles of Community Based Participatory Research. (Pardon the dust, we recently moved our server and are still transferring functionality.)
For a four-minute snapshot of how we began and where we hoped to go with it, watch this short video (circa the People’s Produce Project 2011 Celebration of Cesar Chavez Day).
