  • Description

    Hello! We are two friends who strongly believe in the power of food, community, and creating change starting from a small scale.
    Dongyi is an artist and designer who has had experience working at several permaculture building projects and farms in China, Thailand, and Indonesia. She's interested in learning more about plants and their healing power, and indigenous knowledge of people that are local to the land she travels to. In her free time she enjoys being outdoors and going on hikes, finding secret spots, and talking to people from all walks of life.
    Lusi is also an artist, designer and biotechnologist working to increase citizen science and to encourage food and body literacy for our communities. Living in Berlin, Germany just under four years she's been working with local food projects and self organized events around food, art, and citizen science. Main interests include cultivating mushrooms, soil regeneration/composting, storytelling through art.
