The short video documentary Collective Recollections: Food Histories and Food Futures in the Kingston Region showcases community members interested in food histories with the hope of publicizing how such historical knowledge can be useful and insightful when imagining our food futures. The video is part of a larger community-university research alliance (funded under the 5th Annual NiCHE Call for Projects) between the Department of Geography at Queen’s University, the NFU New Farm Project, and the people, flora and fauna of the Kingston region. The project aims to facilitate the exchange of historical knowledge with the intention of providing a deeper appreciation for local food systems, the sustenance and the meaningful community relationships that they have and can provide.
