free events/programs that engage the community in
art-making, food, and conversation
Story Seeds was a storytelling and art-making engagement that I facilitated with the community present at the 32nd Street Farmers Market in Baltimore, MD on two Saturdays in October 2021. Based on the premise that stories are key to investing in our local communities, I interviewed people about their own market stories in exchange for “Market Muffins,” baked with zucchini, carrots, and walnuts from local farms. The process of engagement is best described by a story that I tell about two participants.
