Online: Culture & Climate Justice with Diandra Esperza

What is a culture keeper? And how does maintaining and honoring cultural traditions support climate resilience? In this talk from Diandra Esparza, Executive Director at Intersectional Environmentalist, she shares about the ways her heritage and art influence her climate justice activism – and how we can each harness our own cultural backgrounds to take action for people and the planet.

Diandra Marizet Esparza (she/her) is an organizational development strategist, published writer, poet and co-founder of Intersectional Environmentalist, where she currently serves as the Executive Director. Diandra’s work seeks to help environmentalists everywhere recognize culture as an expression of relationship to land. Her work advocates for the accessibility of diverse stories for rising generations. Diandra is a contributing writer in the academically adopted book The Intersectional Environmentalist: How to Dismantle Systems of Oppression to Protect People + Planet.

ALL PLANTS ARE GROWN either by WSP staff at our nursery at Turkey Hill Farm or by trained and experienced volunteers. Plants are grown using organic growing practices without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. Plants are grown seed outdoors, and most are first year plants. They may look smaller than what you are used to seeing at conventional nurseries, but have strong healthy root systems and should do well planted into your landscape this fall. We will publish our 2024 species list in early July so you may start learning about what’s available. To see some of the species we’ve sold in previous years, please refer to our 2023 Plant List.

Hope to see you there!
