Speaker Series: Gaby Pereyra, Northeast Farmers of Color Land Trust

February 19, 2021
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Please join us for a talk with Gabriela Pereyra, Northeast Farmers of Color Land Trust.

Gaby Pereyra is a Venezuelan/Uruguayan transplant to NY. Her immense love for plant ancestors started at an early age, when she began to learn anything and everything about them, especially their relationship to people in agro-ecosystems. Gaby's current responsibility as Land Network Weaver is to seed and strengthen relationships, networks, collaborations, and knowledge exchange among Black, Indigenous, and other land stewards of color. Over the past 15 years, Gaby has worked alongside farmers and land stewards from the Americas, Africa, and Europe, learning about the magical trade-off of carbon, nitrogen, and water between the soil, plants, and the sky. As a descendent of immigrant and refugee ancestors and as an immigrant herself, her commitment is to the re-connection of communities and land, under land tenure models that support human beings and non-humans beings, to create more equitable possibilities for our future ancestors.

The Undergraduate Program in Sustainable Development offers opportunities for students to explore professional development related to sustainability and the environment.
