Schandra Madha is transforming refuse into a resource at the New Haven Ecology Project and Common Ground Urban Farm located in New Haven, Connecticut. The organization Schandra works with is a working model of holistic learning and leadership development for students and community members in environmental and social justice. Common Ground Urban Farm and High School provides many opportunities for students to grow their leadership skills, feelings of empowerment, and agency to create positive change, teachings which have the potential to create ripples well beyond New Haven. Schandra sees youth themselves as a resource, and knows that adults can play an important role in young people’s lives to illuminate opportunities along their path.
