UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA 19/07/13 New tool for food systems researchers PRLog (Press Release) - Jul. 19, 2013 - ITHACA, N.Y. -- In an effort to narrow the gap between implementation of local food system projects and related academic research, a team at the University of California Davis compiled articles from peer-reviewed journals into an extensive bibliography. Their article, “Community food systems: Strengthening the research-to-practice continuum,” provides an initial analysis of the bibliography and is published in the spring 2013 issue of the Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development (www.AgDevJournal.com). “Our hope is to foster a conversation about community food systems in which research and practice are mutually reinforcing,” says co-author David Campbell of the Department of Human Ecology at UC Davis. The paper concludes with suggestions for research that responds to the challenges and unites practitioners and academics.

You can just run the ends along the inside of the seamed edge, and it's invisible. All other joins are slightly imperfect, so best to locate them inconspicuously if possible, like under the arm of a sweater. Felting will only work with wool, and some other animal fibers. Always try a test sample first with your yarn to see if it will work, and to see if you like the results!

Individual Grantseekers Because most private foundations make grants only to nonprofit organizations, individuals seeking grants must follow a different funding path than public charities. You need to be both creative and flexible in your approach to seeking funding. If you are affiliated with a college or university, contact your department office. Some colleges and universities have an office for sponsored programs, which coordinates grant requests and helps researchers with finding grant opportunities. Also ask your peers and colleagues about funding sources.
