Group goals and common interests:

As a group we were really interested in working with the Gambier Island Sea Ranch because we were interested in learning more about the food systems of small island communities and how agricultural history can be a way to connect people to their agricultural roots and preserve some of the ‘lost knowledge’ about our food. Additionally, we all wanted to achieve personal growth by working within an interdisciplinary team and to improve our professionalism skills working with a community partner. Our group also agreed that a common goal for this project would be to gain a new appreciation for the different perspectives in food systems and to achieve a deeper understanding of how communities relate to their food. Lastly, we all agreed that this was a really good opportunity for us to see the ABCD approach ‘in action’, and we hope that working on this project will help in any future community-based projects we might find ourselves working on in the future.
