Practice Consumption and Value Creation: Advancing the Practice Theoretical Ontology of Consumption Community

In what ways do practices create value? Because consumer researchers have equated practices with their performance, practice consumption and its role in value creation remains under-theorized. Addressing this theoretical gap, we offer conceptualization and empirical analysis of the consumption dimension of practices through multi-method research conducted within an online gardening community.
