Abstract:

This thesis looks carefully at community disaster resilience and explores what resiliency is, why communities need it, and applies those concepts to community gardening as one way to gain a foothold in building resiliency at the local level. Although non-traditional in approach, a study of community gardens through the lens of emergency management reveals that these social enterprises have hidden values in their contribution to disaster resilience. Combining a literature review of resilience and disaster resilience concepts with semi-structured interviews of community gardeners and community garden leadership provides evidence that disaster resiliency building can be aided through community garden programs.
