Abstract:Observation, interviews, and a pilot study were conducted to identify requirements for social media to support knowledge sharing that will foster organization and growth of the Local Food System (LFS) in Denton, Texas. Due to lack of infrastructure, participants of this grassroots, self-organized, self-sustaining community of practice currently do not have access to physical or virtual space needed to share, retrieve, and archive LFS knowledge. Proposed system design and implementation will be based on completion of a mixed methods community study. Ethnographic techniques for a close-to-home investigation will examine how the existing LFS community operates. The goal is to design an unobtrusive LFS knowledge sharing social media site that is optimized for thoughtful archiving, accessible information retrieval, and lifelong community learning.
