Xavier Brown

Xavier Brown is a native of Washington, DC and a graduate of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University.  Brown is the founder of Soilful City in Washington, DC. 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.
