This course provides participants with an opportunity to develop sense of place mapping skills and explore Portlands foodscapes. We will investigate how mapping dimensions of human-environment interactions helps individuals to understand their relationships with place and can be a useful tool for a diversity of groups looking to document and protect or change their landscape. Prerequisite: None.
