Preparing for Winter Instructor
Kadeesha Williams is a Bronx native who grew up volunteering at Taqwa Community Farm in Highbridge. Inspired by the environment, she worked towards a career in agriculture and education. Early in 2016 Kadeesha became Bronx Green-Up’s new Community Horticulturist/Urban Agriculturist, responsible for conducting workshops and providing technical assistance to strengthen the capacities of Bronx community gardeners and urban farmers.
Prior to Bronx Green-Up, she was at Active Citizen Project for 5 years where she managed an agricultural training program for youth and adults as well as a summer farm apprenticeship program. She has a background in urban agriculture, education and training. Sharing with others the importance of growing your own food has been a joy of hers for many years. She looks forward to continuing that work here at The New York Botanical Garden.
