Adia Stuart


Adia is an urban farmer born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. The ways gentrification has shifted the social, economic, and cultural demographics in New York City means millions of New Yorkers are vulnerable to the threats of climate disaster. This has persuaded Adia to shift their career from International Relations and Human Rights to the more fulfilling agricultural route. Their aim is to work with federal and local politicians to establish accessible community spaces on land idly waiting for corporate development and share climate narratives that reflect those most marginalized. Adia’s partnership with Brooklyn Movement Center will enable the creation of vital community spaces that center political education, cooperative economics, organic gardening, and building solidarity amongst low-income BIPOC New Yorkers.
