Me & My Work

Image result for jess gerriorI 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 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 interest in environmental education and leadership. It will continue to be a work in progress. Please seek permission before using or referencing content by clicking CONNECT.
