About Leann Leiter

Born in 1986 and raised in rural Pennsylvania, I´m connected to and constantly inspired by my area's backwoods culture, my family's Pennsylvania Dutch heritage, and the hereditary tendency toward hoarding. Much of my time is spent traipsing through the woods finding abandoned houses to make my own and discovering objects to collect.

Leann is deep into her first semester of her masters program in Sustainable Communities. She’s been spending a lot of time working in the student garden. She’s enjoying it, and is very busy and happy. She’s able to bike to school usually, which is cool. Also learning lots about foraging and new native plants. Jack is doing archaeological fieldwork with a local firm throughout the southwest (Nevada, Utah, and New Mexico so far), and loving it. Lots of time surveying and exploring the desert, scrub, and pinyon/juniper forest. It’s absolutely beautiful out here. In free time he's still playing music and doing some recording and writing.
