Isa Jamira is a garden educator from Mount Vernon, New York. She started urban gardening and farming in 2017 as an environmental studies college intern at Bates College. Isa stopped operating as a sole proprietor, founded Liberated Lands Inc., and acquired an acre of land to grow the first Liberated Lands campus in 2022. The mission of Liberated Lands is to create spaces centering Indigenous knowledge where individuals learn how to take care of themselves through taking care of the earth. The funds from this grant will help to fund purchasing a vehicle to transport students from the NYC area to the campus for builds and classes.
