Improving Food Safety and Sustainability: Minimizing the Effects of Rodents in an Urban Community Garden (Team 1)

For our Food Systems Capstone project, we collaborated with the Danny Woo Community Garden to suggest methods to decrease urban rodent infestations and their associated damage to gardeners’ crops. We produced a multilingual flyer for public distribution to spread awareness and inform Seattle residents of actions they can take to help mitigate the problem. Our approach included encouraging individual behavioral changes and community engagement via volunteer opportunities.
