to explore food stories and relationships: https://sites.google.com/site/foodsheds/
The project is shaped by those who get involved to tell stories together, and to tell parts of stories that others will build on, to connect, expand, and transform food out of its role as a social problem and into something we feed each other with.
This project is an online maker space where we can share tools to tell stories we think are important about food.
Next steps we need collaborators to help with: figuring out how to explain what stages the various things stored in the FoodShed are in, and what can be done next!
We focus on learning stories, either in the form of records from community-based research that are shared so that others can learn from them -- or in the form of collections of various experiences and records that have been shared on the site.
We are starting with stories that have come from community collaborations around food in Minnesota, and branching out to related sets of stories around clusters of food work, for example about:
- ways people have successfully secured land to produce food
- ways people have addressed things that bothered them about the way food is produced and distributed
- amazing things we think more people should know and care about and be able to participate in
