Nourish SC

Nourish SC was a multi-year research and engagement project exploring the local food movement and fight for community food security in South Carolina. The project culminated in a traveling exhibition which was displayed at a number of farmers markets throughout South Carolina in 2009.

The exhibition was built from research on South Carolina historic foodways and interviews with various stakeholders, including farmers, government officials, public health researchers, and activists.

Because of this research, I was invited to be a part of Public Historians and the Local Food Movement working group at the 2013 National Council on Public History conference. Each member of the working group produced a blog post about their work. Here is mine, which includes more information about Nourish SC: http://historyatthetable.blogspot.com/2013/04/tyler-french-attending-to-other-tables.html
