Tiffany El-Amin: “I am a farmer in Appalachian Kentucky. I farm herbs and other flowers and plants for pollinators conservation that we have in our state. I’m a wife, I’m a mother, I homeschool my daughter who is now in high school. I’m also a local food advocate. I once was the Northeastern Kentucky Farm to Table coordinator for Community Farm Alliance out of Berea, Kentucky. My role now is as a Food Justice organizer. I co-own Alfalfa Restaurant in downtown Lexington with my husband. I’m also a full-spectrum Doula, going on 10 years plus. And of course in my free time I like to put together a pollinator habitat and garden spaces throughout Central Kentucky, working directly with educational programs and summer programs to work with children and further their knowledge about STEM education, capitalizing the agriculture in that.”

Lexington in the Time of COVID-19 is an artwork about people practicing social distancing at a time of a deadly virus. And also offering kindness.
