Community Cooking

A Sustain DuPage Gardeners Project

David is the Organizer for the Community Cooking project.

When he’s not busy cooking and learning about food,  he works as a Spanish Bilingual Coordinator for Chicago Public Schools, a Landscaping Consultant specializing in plantings that increase biodiversity, and an Associate Real Estate Agent for Redfin. In his spare time he studies botany, foreign languages, Tai Chi and Qi Gong. (He’s also recording an album of original songs to be released in 2019!) As culinary coordinator, his goal is to teach people that eating  delicious homegrown food doesn’t have to be complicated and is one of the best ways to connect us to our environment and community.
