The Experience of Peterborough Residents With the Peterborough Renovates Program and the Homeownership Assistance Loan Program
The following research paper investigates the effects of two of Peterborough City and County’s affordable housing programs: the Peterborough Renovates Program and the Homebuyer Assistance Loan Program. The goal of the research was to determine whether the programs were meeting their objectives, which were, primarily, positively impacting the quality of life of participants. Additional data about how participants heard about the program and whether they understood the terms of their loan were also collected. To determine whether the programs were meeting their goals both a quantitative and qualitative analyses were performed using data from a survey mailed to participants in both programs. The researchers found the programs do have a positive impact on self- reported quality of life of participants. However, future research into these phenomena is still needed in order to provide specific policy recommendations., By Laura Crump, Date of Project Submission: April 2016., Completed for: City of Peterborough, Housing; Supervising Professor: Roger Picton; Trent Community Research Centre Project Coordinator: Matthew Hayes, GEOG 3901H - Communinty Based Research

Cafe Producer and Supplier Profiles
The Seasoned Spoon Café is a non-profit, vegetarian, cooperative cafe located in Champlain College on Trent University’s campus in Peterborough, Ontario. The Season Spoon Cafe is committed to improving food security of the local community. The Cafe Producer and Supplier Profiles community research project was designed to showcase the Season Spoon Cafe’s producer and suppliers through a web-based mapping application developed and embedded on the Spoon’s website along with a storyboard created for display at the cafe. These two deliverables highlight the organic, natural, and locally sourced food served at the Cafe and is intended to connect the Spoon’s community to a variety of their producers and suppliers. The main findings of this report show that: food sourcing occurs primarily within the desired foodshed; produce (fruits and vegetables) is the dominant type of food producer; and the Seasoned Spoon Cafe sources from a combination of small and large business operations for various products. Community members are encouraged to use these educational tools to meet their food producers and suppliers, and potentially source their household food from them. These actions aim to strengthen local food security of the Seasoned Spoon community., By Sarah Lidster and Sheena Young, Date of Project Submission: April 2016., Completed for: Seasoned Spoon Café; Supervising Professor: Peter Lafleur; Trent Community Research Centre Project Coordinator: John Marris, GEOG 4030Y - Community-based Research in Geography
