Musician, researcher and food activist Alise Kirtley was invited to reflect on the potentiality of the Patchwork Commons through music. Her song, Patchwork, is a hope-filled call to action, meditating on the connection between the body and the earth.

Alise Kirtley is the writer, performer and co-producer of Folkestone-based band The Bearing. She is also a member of Feeding Folkestone and coordinates the Folkestone Community Fridge, all the while working on a PhD with the UK Food Systems CDT.
