Jared Maurice Dancler aka Ashi hails from Schoharie Valley, central New York State, where glacial erosion left rich soil in which he planted his first onions after school, picked tomatoes ‘til green sticky hands, tore ears from their tall-stands on the creek-fed land. Having rambled and burr stuck to these ferns, now at home with loving community amidst collaborative arts, crafts, cooking, tending, sending love and seeds to family back east. Ashi helps care for children and elders, as well as friends’ farms around the way. A lover of food, music, dance & plants, down to play, vision, let bloom creative branches between us, to weave this great basket & hold us well in all our multiplicity, memory, humanity, ancestry, memory, empathy.
