Hugh Simpson

Volunteer, Global Gardens of Peace

I have a deep passion for all areas of food, from research and advocacy to growing and nurturing. Below are some of my key involvements in food praxis

- volunteer at the Common Ground Project (regenerative agriculture farm)

- volunteer at Global Gardens of Peace (an NGO working towards creating therapeutic green spaces/community gardens in Gaza, as well as in health and wellbeing settings locally)

- Masters thesis exploring the intersections of food security/sovereignty, gender, and colonialism in Palestine

I am a firm believer that a reconnection to the wisdom of the earth through growing and nurturing plants can solve many of our problems today :)
