The Inna City Hippie
I transformed my outside space into what feels like a city forest. The air is so clean and the sight is so beautiful, just being here gives you a therapy session for your physical body. As you breathe in their oxygen, they breathe in your carbon dioxide, the dance of life exists in a continuum that is so grand, I’m forever in wonder. When we consume them, their physical bodies actually become a body part of ours. Both of us are made of the oldest and most precious non-living element on earth- water. The very act of consuming plant life connects us as one magnificent ecosystem. How amazing and dope is that? So, come experience a multi-sensory journey through the garden with me. Whether you’re an adult or a free spirited kid, my excitement and passion will connect anyone with nature and they too will be as amazed as I am.
About the Inna City Hippie
Pregnancy and an Amazing Body
Early in my pregnancy, I began reading a magazine that explained how my baby was growing month by month in my amazing body. Every article explained how each new organ or body part was developed by the food I chose to eat. It seemed that most of our bodies were literally formed by fruit and vegetables. I was mesmerized. The biggest lesson though was my choice. Whatever I choose to eat, was used to build everything from his bones to his toenails. Within a year, I became a vegan and a regular volunteer in my neighborhood garden.
Time to Spread the Love
I taught myself nutritionism and made healthy foods so delicious that friends and family began to encourage me to show others how to do the same. I took their advice, and for the next 10 years I began giving cooking classes at local markets, colleges, community centers, and libraries.
Higher Education & More
I became a Certified Health Coach at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. I also began teaching Health, Wellness, Nutrition, and cooking classes to children in Broward County Public Schools.
Time to go to the Source-the Garden
After teaching cooking classes for so many years, I noticed that our community had a slight disconnect with the journey of their food. I expanded outside the classroom and began teaching gardening, having garden tours, and cooking from the garden to children in the Parks and Recreation in Broward County.
