Homer Smith graduated summa cum laude, December 2008, holding a wide variety of odd jobs (from landscaping crew leader to quartet singer) until joining a flagging data processing project with a Midwestern Fortune 500 company, and coordinating it successfully to completion. Inspired to work in local food, he has served several grassroots Mid-Atlantic organizations in roles from operations manager to farmhand. He volunteers with Baltimore’s Master Gardeners program and sits on his neighborhood’s board, working to build local community. As an independent consultant, he has helped startups, non-profits, historians, and artists with operations, research, and communications.
Some of the organizations I’ve done projects or work for:
– Baltimore Efficiency & Economy Foundation
– BaltimoreUrbanAg.org (now lying fallow)
– Common Good City Farm
– Creative Alliance
– Manna House
– Maryland Disability Law Center
– National Electronics Museum
