Tony Noble (Miller Farm Coordinator)

Picture Coming Soon!
Explain your role on the Know Hunger Know More team. What do you do?

  • Tony is the contact person for Earlham College’s Miller Farm, which was another natural partner for the composting part of KHKM’s vision for food security. Miller Farm and KHKM share a lot of common goals, and Tony is interested in building a kitchen out at the farm in order to better host the community meals that are already part of Farm Day (a casual gathering of volunteers every Saturday morning, spring-fall.) Tony sees room for his role at KHKM to continue evolving as the business does.

If you were a fruit or vegetable, what one would you be? Why?

  • Tony would be the elusively hard to grow Asparagus Pea, which is interesting to him because it is a nitrogen-fixing legume. This uncommon vegetable also interests him because he has tried to grow it without success, for a few seasons now, making it somewhat of a holy grail of vegetables.

Which aspect of the KHKM plan are you most excited about developing?

  • He is most excited about engaging the wider Richmond Community in the food system, and getting more people connected to healthy food. As part of this, he is working on developing a food forest out at Miller Farm, which he hopes will serve both as an educational space, and a sustainable food source for the community.

What in your background has led you to be interested in this?

  • Since graduating with an undergraduate degree in industrial engineering, Tony has been fascinated with systems,which is how he got into agriculture, and specifically  permaculture, which is a system of plants and animals and weather, rather than machines. His experience as a chef, as well as his Masters degree in Urban Planning have also contributed to his interest in Miller Farm, as well as KHKM and food systems in general.

Abby McCullough (Graphics & Design Manager)

Explain your role on the Know Hunger Know More team. What do you do?

  • Abby focused on generating graphics for the pitches during the Earlham Prize for Creative Capitalism phase of development, and has since been helping with website and Instagram promotion. She has also been spearheading the work towards opening a community kitchen, by researching available spaces, and working with local health inspectors. She has also been working with  Sprout of Control and Maggie Weadick at HeadStart, where she helped get a grant for them to start a worm composting system on their playground.

If you were a fruit or vegetable, what one would you be? Why?

  • Abby would be asparagus, because of the moment a few summers ago, when she was working for a landscaping company and ran across a patch of asparagus. She was struck then by how connected our food system is: the asparagus was just like the stuff she was used to eating! That was the moment she remembers falling in love with the directness of this connection between farm and table.

Which aspect of the KHKM plan are you most excited about developing?

  • Abby’s original dream when she got involved with the project, was the idea of a greenhouse+restaurant setup, that would allow customers to pick the produce that the chef would then make into a meal for them. Perhaps this will come someday, but in the meantime Abby is excited to work on developing a co-working kitchen space here in Richmond. She envisions a space that would be open for caterers to rent, farmers market vendors to use, and also as a place where community cooking classes could be taught.

What in your background has led you to be interested in this?

  • Abby’s mom raised her with a big emphasis on food and nutrition, buying organic produce and taking nutrition classes while Abby was young. Although she didn’t quite appreciate it it as a kid, Abby has come around to value the importance of this in her current work. Abby’s Earlham art major has also led her to see food as a form of creative expression.

Lily Fishleder (Media & Communications Manager)

Explain your role on the Know Hunger Know More team. What do you do?

  • Lily is in charge of all kinds of KHKM communications, meaning she sets up and takes notes at meetings, set up the email accounts, as well as the website and is working on business cards. She was also involved in the business plan, and continues to keep everyone on track moving forward.

If you were a fruit or vegetable, what one would you be? Why?

  • Lily would be a wild strawberry. She has fond memories of picking strawberries in upstate New York, near her family’s house there, and she is excited by the connection between the plant and the food that nurtures us.

Which aspect of the KHKM plan are you most excited about developing?

  • Lily has recently become fascinated with the interlocking systems of food and people, and ways in which we can make these interactions more respectful on all sides (she is beginning to think that permaculture might be the answer.) She is excited about the idea of facilitating a better relationships with food for people in Wayne Co.

What in your background has led you to be interested in this?

  • In her junior year of high school, Lily was able to attend the High Mountain Institute for the spring semester, where she came to appreciate the the natural world, and the value of intentional community. At Earlham, her Human Development and Social Relations major  kept up her interest in the interconnections between people and systems. The August Wilderness program, learning more about outdoor education in general, and the Quaker values that guide Earlham have also all contributed to her interest in KHKM.
