Speaker: Haleh Zandi

Social Justice - Cultivate Food, Nurture People

Haleh Zandi is a co-founder and the Educational Director of Planting Justice. Planting Justice is on the forefront of a movement to create living-wage jobs for reentry people with barriers to employment, while transforming their local food system into one that fosters positive relationships between people, nature, and the food that sustains us. Haleh is dedicated to the ways in which diverse communities can build alliances and practice strategies that would structurally shift the United States towards more ecologically sustainable and socially just methods for growing and sharing our food.

Haleh has taught over 200 workshops using Planting Justice’s self-designed curriculum in food justice, culinary arts, and permaculture design.

Haleh received her MA in Postcolonial Anthropology from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco and a BA in Cultural Anthropology from the University of Califonia, Santa Cruz.
