Instructor

My mission in this life is to connect as many people as possible back to nature through the process of learning how to grow organic vegetables and fruits. The growing, sharing, and preparing clean, nutritious food creates health minds and healthy bodies, and that makes for healthy decisions. Food is not only medicine, it is an important part of fostering a sense of community. Food also plays a role in our collective healing.

Nicole has worked on several organic farms. She has served as an Urban Farmer for the U.S. National Arboretum in several District of Columbia Public Schools and the District's Dreaming Out Loud food hub. Nicole holds degrees from Hampton University and the Howard University School of Law.
