November Researcher of the Month – Paul Cabaj

Paul Cabaj cut his teeth in food systems through work on his family's farms as a farmer's market vendor and restaurant owner.   He currently works with the Canadian Centre for Community Renewal (CCCR).  CCCR is focused on identifying and scaling up best practices which assist communities increase their resilience to the crosscutting challenges of peak oil and climate change, including a community's capacity to feed itself in the challenging environment ahead.  Paul has worked on a over dozen local food related initiatives ranging from academic case studies and policy development, to  market research and business planning particularly for local businesses and cooperatives.
