Xavier Brown is a native of Washington, DC and a graduate of North CarolinaAgricultural and Technical State University. He operates at the boundaries of urban agriculture, environmental sustainability, and African Diasporic culture.  His work intertwines  sustainability with the issues that impact stressed communities from gun violence to mass incarceration.

By studying the practices of indigenous people and going back to ancestral knowledge, Xavier is creating a new  sustainability movement that  is  healing the people and the land by reconnecting our scared relationship to the earth.
