Seneca is a grower and a steward of the land. Originially from Chicago, IL, he uses hand-made jewelry from natural materials to support his growing and to buy land in the Englewood community. Seneca works in community with other growers to bring farms to people's backyards to help localize the food economy.

The Take Care of Each Other World Tour is a series of interviews with architects, farmers, engineers, and cooperative businesses about their sustainable visions for the future. The tour archives the work of people who cooperatively shape their world instead of endure it. This work records their inspirations, grounding principles, and lessons learned for future generations to move their work forward. In partnership with the Moorland Spingarn Research Center at Howard University and the Grassroots Economic Organizing Collective, the tour explores eight cities in the U.S. and Accra, Ghana.
