Hana Murphy is a lifelong Floridian and food justice seeker. After earning a B.A. in Environmental Science and Policy from Florida State University, she directed an urban farm focused on increasing local food accessibility and strengthening social networks by bringing people together at the table. Her resolution to advance community health through a more grassroots approach continued in the non-profit sector where she led curriculum development and collaborative initiatives with Playground City. These local-level activities revealed persistent systemic injustices and fueled her passion for finding ways to empower people to build alternative systems that are centered on care and deep community. At the Maryland Institute College of Art, she completed a Master’s in Social Design with this charge to investigate the intersection of technology, cultural tradition, and resiliency as it relates to the evolution of food systems and urban design. In October 2022, Hanah joined Kaya as manager of their foraging and farm partnerships program. Hana continuously seeks to infuse curiosity, playful learning, and good food in all of her pursuits and partnerships.
