I love getting my hands dirty working on greening projects around NYC. With a background in program management and environmental education, I work with others to create learning opportunities for our youth. I advocate for holistic living through consumer awareness and community activism.

    • Wow, sorry to hear that tragic news. It’s amazing to me that an organization that supports the community can have such varied people working under their roof.

      Thank you for posting!

      Peace & Love!
