My Work

I am a Doctoral Fellow at Antioch University New England where I am developing research that explores work in community food system efforts involving educational partnerships. My fellowship is supported through the work I do in workplace and community gardening, which supports learning, service, and leadership for community food security and resilience. Elements of this work that inspire me most are creating connections, developing practices and building capacities through direct and collaborative experiences with land, food, and people.

I am a sustainability educator with experience in campus-community engagement, program planning and evaluation, curriculum and professional development, project management, coalition-building, volunteer management, writing, speaking, and teaching. I have facilitated garden-based programs for elementary, middle/high school, undergraduate, graduate, and adult audiences; led local efforts serving farm and community interests through strategic planning, fundraising, and service on boards and committees; and engaged diverse stakeholders in the good, deep work of cultivating knowledge and nourishing community. 

Along the way, I've developed a willingness to take risks; an ability to see edges as creative spaces; and an appreciation for our interconnected nature. I also bring to this work my passion for growing and sharing food, documenting stories through photography, and bringing new voices to the table.

I created this blog in 2011 as an outgrowth of my professional and academic interests. It will continue to be a work in progress. Please CONNECT with me and share your ideas for collaboration.
