Accepted Paper:

Cultivating community, gardening anthropology: permaculture, local food and engaged research.  
Thomas Henfrey (Durham University) Amy Mycock (Durham University)

Paper long abstract:

This paper reports preliminary findings from collaborative action research within a self-organised network of local food producers, consumers and activists in County Durham with close links to permaculture and climate change action movements. Within the Durham Local Food Network, application of permaculture design principles promotes synergy among diverse localisation agendas driven by multiple intersecting discourses. Co-design accordingly contextualises research within the emerging social ecology of local food activism. Optimising the productivity of such research depends on negotiating potential trade-offs of academic and practical yields.
