Profile: Wanda Stewart | Urban Farmer and Homesteader

When I grow up, I'd like to be Wanda Stewart. Just throwing it out there. Watch the video below from Films For Action to find out how this woman is shaping community through her garden and educational services.

More films From Over Grow The System at Wanda Stewart is an urban farmer and homesteader, educator, mother of twins and comrade to many in the movement to educate and inspire others to grow their own food and communities. She is committed especially to working with other African Americans to reframe our shared history, trauma, and greatness through the act of legacy gardening. As long time school administrator, Master Gardener and certified permaculturalist, Wanda blends her skills in recruitment, community outreach, program development with her passions for people and urban farming to model, inspire, and support whole life transformation - in individuals and in community – through the act of gardening and the lens of African American culture and traditions.
