"Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, let's stay here. And by their connection to the land, they are connected to one another." - Anne Raver

I am a Doctoral Fellow in Environmental Studies, developing a framework for food empowerment in my research habitat, community gardens. I see my work as cultivating knowledge and nourishing community as well as building thriving food systems. To this work I bring an appreciation for our interconnected nature, and edges as creative spaces.
