Andrew came to SCLT in 2015 after working at local community organizations and on area farms. He counseled students at the Community College of Rhode Island and later taught adult ed at Progreso Latino, where his Spanish-speaking skills were deepened. He was drawn to SCLT because he wanted to help find equitable solutions to land use issues at an organization where people treat each other and the land with compassion. Andrew started as a VISTA program associate, and now coordinates SCLT’s garden network. A graduate of Brown University with a BA in International Relations and Anthropology, he enjoys working with our urban farmers, who have taught him many things, including the names of different plants in several languages. He can often be found working on a garden or cooking project while trying to avoid sitting at his desk for too many hours a day.
