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.
