Recipes for Community
Recipes for Community is both a framework and a series of projects that grew from my first year living in Baltimore, MD, and shopping and working at the city’s farmers’ markets. It is based on the premise that community cannot be defined. Like a recipe, it adapts based on the ingredients available. Inspired by adrienne maree brown’s assertion that the quality of our lives and survival are tied to the authenticity of our relationships with each other and our places, each iteration of Recipes for Community creates the space to recognize our interdependence through the intention of our attention.

Investing in Community
Investing in the local economy is key to Recipes for Community, and whenever possible I try to financially compensate community partners. Thanks to the generosity of funders, as of April 2022 more than $7025 has gone to support local businesses, artists, farmers, non-profits, and community members.
