People at Laurier

Alison Blay-Palmer, Geography and Environmental Studies I do research and teach about how the economy, society and the environment intersect to create (un)sustainable communities. I am particularly interested in local food systems and the path our food takes to get to our plates. As part of my research I am developing Food Counts, a community-based food systems report card so we can understand more about how food impacts the spaces we live in."
