dc.description.abstractThis thesis employed a community-based participatory action research approach to explore how community-led design might create a hospital-based community garden and opportunities for food literacy. Design thinking was utilized to facilitate conversation amongst local community members, inclusive of a cross-section of public and private organizations. A survey and interviews were conducted as secondary methods. This inquiry found that design thinking created opportunity for co-creation of knowledge while providing innovative and practical ideas for a hospital-based community garden. Design recommendations suggest ideas for a sustainable hospital-based community garden, integrating key components of aesthetics and education. Main findings include creating an inclusive hospital-based community garden with a supportive structure as an environment for knowledge sharing. An additional finding of transformative learning through collaboration was noted. The research highlights that there is opportunity for community gardens to serve as spaces of pedagogy in the initial design phases and should be considered for future community garden projects.
