Ruby Maddox Fisher on Urban sustainability

Happy belated Earth day! I was going through the my"Film Archives" on my computer, and found this footage I actually took last month because of I wanted to post this in honor International Women's Day.

Ruby Maddox-Fisher is the co-founder and past director of Gardening the Community (GtC), a youth-centered, community based, urban agriculture program in Springfield, MA. GtC grows organic frutis and vegetables on formerly abandoned lots while learning about and practicing agriculture, environmental stewardship and community development. She talks about the impact her nonprofit has made in the community regarding environmental justice.
