Faith Kellermeyer at the Ball State Graduate School recently interviewed me to discuss my involvement with the HUB Community Garden. In this piece, she highlights the origin of the project, its significance to the community, and how it might help to spur future projects, including those for in-coming graduate students. Right now, a group of students from the departments of Landscape Architecture, Urban Planning, and Anthropology are all working together to design a new garden-park in collaboration with the Old West End Neighborhood Association. We are hoping to get the project off the ground this spring and implement the site design by this summer. If you’re interested in getting involved, please feel free to contact me.

I'm a cultural and environmental anthropologist with interests in biodiversity management and smallholder agriculture in rural Amazonia. I've conducted research on agrobiodiversity management, anthropogenic soils, and community-based conservation. Currently, I'm also interested in the ways that farmers rely upon social networks, local ecological knowledge, and agrobiodiversity management to contend with the uncertainties of global climate change.
