I have worked with city farming since 2009. I have aimed to develop city farming as a method for people to meet in their neighbourhood as well as working pedagogically with children. I have studied environmental sciences at Malmö University and social anthropology at Lund University.

My dad worked for SIDA and I spent my first three years in Ethiopia. In my teens we all moved to Guinea-Bissau. I would like to thank my parents for giving me such an interesting and extraordinary childhood. This has meant a lot to me and made me who I am and what I do today. I spend my winters in Ethiopia and I love the feeling of freedom when tracking in the mountains.
