My name is Jezra Thompson. I am an urban planner who uses community redevelopment tools to help reconnect the broken food system--focusing on building economic and social capital for those that produce the food and empowering those that consume the food.
I aspire to challenge conventional thought around the built environment and cultural constructions to engage communities (families, farmers, hobos, etc.) and policy makers (planners, government officials, etc..) to improve urban and rural food insecurity and farming sustainability.
I do a little consulting, project management, writing, editing, and designing at all scales with professionals and citizens concerned with food access as a public policy and urban/regional planning topic.
Check out my academic and work experience above via the More tab....and, give me a holler if you have a cool idea for a project that you'd like to collaborate on, or if you have a pressing question around food system planning.
