A personal project documenting a human connection to food by exploring urban gardening and farming throughout the Washington, DC area.
Cultiver: Exploring the Connection Between Food and People
The earliest thoughts of this project started quite a number of years ago. In fact, I began thinking about the connection of food, gardening, and people in the urban landscape as I learned about food deserts, nutrition scarcity, and the overall impacts of commercial agriculture on the environment -- both locally and globally. It wasn't until pursing a degree in environmental sustainability that I started to build a more robust interest in the topics, though. Nevertheless, this project is driven by the common goal that appears in each of project: learning more about a specific community. But more than that, it also provides an outlet to learn more about the food grown within our communities and how that binds people together.
