This project was completed as part of the 2016-2017 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of Brooklyn Park. Brooklyn Park has several known food deserts, areas where obtaining nutritious and quality foods is difficult. Stephanie Boylan assessed this problem and explored what other communities have done to solve it as part of Dr. Jamie Stang’s Maternal and Child Health Field Experience class. By performing a literature search, Boylan determined that there is no blanket solution for situations like these, requiring each case be examined independently. She then assessed the proposed community garden plan to determine its feasibility. Her final report and presentation are available.
Report, poster, and presentation completed by students enrolled in PUBH 7696: Field Experience: Maternal and Child Health, taught by Jamie Stang in spring 2017.
