Community Food Supply Research

Identifying success stories from Africa and around the world where people have come together to create local, natural, sustainable solutions for increasing the supply of healthy food for local people.

We invite everyone in the OWL/Conversation-in-the-Garden community to contribute to this research — between August 12 and September 9 — by posting links to websites that share these kinds of stories and this kind of knowledge. And when you post the link, please also say something about what is positive about this that stands out for you. The team will review this research to help identify best practices, and determine a plan for the project.
