Bienvenido / Welcome

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).

  1. Your video intro is inspiring. I love how you couple the powers of story-telling and community organizing to improve quality of life and place. The content, soundtrack and imagery is great too.
