who?

Hello, I’m Michelle, an forager, urban farmer and tinkerer based in Singapore. I’m part of Tanah, a collective that looks at reimagining spaces with food - agri interventions. And more recently, [Cru.mb] - nurturing discussion around critical agri - food thinking. I currently work with Native, on culinary lexicon around biodiversity, sustainability and the like.

I’m an avid maker - visiting hack-spaces around Asia and meeting like - minded makers is part of the journey. I sometimes write: on Hawker Histories, forgotten cuisine and food politics in the region
