Keynote Speaker Aleya Fraser is a returning generation farmer from Baltimore, MD. She has been farming for the last 5 years on the ancestral lands of Harriet Tubman on the Eastern Shore of Maryland where she grew a variety of fruits and vegetables for market and saved seeds for future generations on the farm that she co founded named Black Dirt Farm.
She came to farming through her ancestral background and through years of work in the outpatient, inpatient and research aspects of hospitals. It was through her education and these personal experiences that she began to understand food as medicine and also food as a tool of social change
