Me & My Work

I am a home, community, and workplace organic gardener and Doctoral Fellow in Environmental Studies at Antioch University New England. My background in environmental education and leadership includes creating campus gardens, coordinating sustainability projects, building healthy and accessible local food systems, and stewarding community relationships. I am currently developing research around the concept of community food empowerment, while raising teenagers and volunteering with gleaning and other service projects. I see my work as cultivating knowledge and nourishing community as well as building thriving food systems. 

To do this well requires (1) a willingness to take risks, (2) the ability to see edges as creative spaces, and (3) an appreciation for our interconnected nature. I also bring to this work my passion for growing and sharing food, journaling through photography, and scholarship as part of a larger journey of resilience.

I created this blog in 2011 as an outgrowth of my professional and academic interests. It will continue to be a work in progress.
