Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of a year-long partnership between Scott County and the University of Minnesota’s Resilient Communities Project (http://www.rcp.umn.edu). The goal of this project was to explore options for creating an edible landscape in Scott County. Scott County project leads Jayme Carlson and Lisa Brodsky collaborated with graduate students, Jenna Yeakle and Kristine Mcintyre, as part of their Master of Public Health Culminating Experience. Jenna Yeakle worked with her faculty adviser, Dr. Jennifer Linde, to identify community engagement strategies while Kristine Mcintyre worked with her faculty adviser, Dr. Katie Loth, to identify how the edible landscape could meet the nutritional needs of the community. Final reports from the project are available.
Reports and presentations were completed by students as part of their Culminating Experience for their Master of Public Health. Dr. Katie Loth and Dr. Jennifer Linde were the faculty advisers.
This project was supported by the Resilient Communities Project (RCP), a program at the University of Minnesota whose mission is to connect communities in Minnesota with U of MN faculty and students to advance community resilience through collaborative, course-based projects. RCP is a program of the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA). More information at http://www.rcp.umn.edu.
