I am a passionate food activist and artist who is looking to attain a master's degree in either agroecology and/or food politics.
I intern at Earth Charter Indiana and am involved in the Greater Indianapolis Food Security Summit.
What is the summit you ask?
A convention of like-minded people to discuss and collect ideas on how Indianapolis could become more self-sufficient, sustainable and food-secure in the future.
During subsequent meetings, we will work on creating a positive, creative and do-able vision of what a truly food-sustainable Indianapolis would look like. We will also discuss what "food secure" means to us and how it might best serve, and be supported by, the broader community.
