About your host
I came to Philadelphia from California seeking opportunities to use the arts and youth organizing as a vehicle for social change. At age nineteen I took part in co-founding Urban Creators where I am currently the Co-Executive Director and Executive Producer of "HoodStock Community and Arts Festival.” I look forward to hosting you at our Life Do Grow urban farm!
