MetadataShow full item record
In order to build community and provide additional amenities at their properties, several affordable housing developers in Austin, Texas have begun integrating on-site food production into their developments. This project explored the experiences of staff and tenants at two agencies that have connected food production and housing. Based on analysis of these narrative data, I identified current opportunities to further integrate and expand on-site food production into affordable housing. I proposed solutions to overcome challenges and recommended policies and incentives that could support the integration.
