Jody Nelson

Project Lead, Culture Exchange | Island Food Network | Canada

Jody works as a Project Lead for Inspiring Communities. She is also a Coordinator for the Island Food Network, through which she co-developed the Culture Exchange. This initiative creates grassroots opportunities for women to connect and learn together while laying the groundwork for culture-based enterprises. The program supports seven rural and underserved communities across the island, offering over 50 cultural skills workshops each year. When Jody is not working with the community, she is feeding the community. “I have run a small-scale vegetable farm for ten years. My farm has always been at the heart of how I give to and connect with community, friends, and family.”
