“Looking back, my time at Urban Adamah was a significant pivot point in the course of my life…”

“…Not only did the Urban Adamah Fellowship expose me to the world of urban agriculture, but it turned me on to a way of learning that four years of college never did. I’ve carried those two threads with me ever since, embarking on a career that merges entrepreneurialism with food justice.”
