The product of a colony that has been extracted, abused and made completely dependent on external resources. Born in Santurce, Puerto Rico, they are an architect building a world where agro-ecological concepts and queer practices are used to create resilience through food sovereignty. Tara is the founder of El Departamento de la Comida, a project born in 2010 as a multi-farm CSA, then a storefront, then a local-sustainable sourced experimental kitchen, restaurant and workshop space in Puerto Rico, now in the stages of moving into a farm. They are also the co-founder/co-director of El Fondo de Resiliencia de Puerto Rico, born out of the aftermath of hurricanes Irma and María.
