Student research paper


This is a research paper. This paper details my findings and experiences while endeavoring to create a website (Carrot Sticks) that connects unwanted crops with people in need. The project was motivated by the increase in gardening awareness that resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as some troubling statistics about food waste in America. This project took place over the course of six weeks in the Fall of 2022, and my outcomes and takeaways are contained herein.
