Fresh Hill Behind: designing activities for learning food
MetadataShow full item record
Segregation of local food systems is becoming an issue to be discussed in the United States. Most people are only in touch with the retails and consumption parts of the whole food system. The disconnect with food production may lead to the loss of interest in fresh food. Sited on a hill behind Rainier Vista, Seattle, my thesis focuses on creating activities for recovering connections to local food systems. Participants and visitors are able to learn about eco-systems, seasonality, and diverse cultures through themed activities. That promotes the recovery of local food systems. The site proposed will be no longer just a hill. It will become a fresh hill that is connected to many local facilities, and that forms a large corridor of food infrastructure. The infrastructure will breakdown the segregation of local food system and foster a healthy relationship between people and the food they eat.
