New Curriculum Tackles Food Insecurity in Rural US

We are pleased to announce the publication of the Grow Food Where People Live gardening and food curriculum produced in partnership with the University of North Carolina Asheville (UNCA) and The McCullough Institute for Conservation, Land Use and Environmental Resiliency.

The curriculum is the fruit of more than a year-and-a-half of action research conducted by UNCA student Julia Krebs-Moberg under the mentorship of UNCA professor Alison Ormsby. Ms. Krebs-Moberg won a 2016 McCullough fellowship to investigate best practices and develop a curriculum for community resilience and food security. The curriculum contains 13 hands-on lessons to teach essentials skills for growing, preserving and cooking healthy food, and introduces market gardening concepts that successful gardeners can use to turn their home-scale production into a micro-enterprise.
