Cynthia Espinosa Marrero is a food systems scholar and activist, helping diverse communities grow and learn more about food and environmental systems. Her passion was seeded with her family and neighbors in Yabucoa,P.R. where she grew up. With over 10 years of experience in the food systems, Cynthia is now focusing her expertise in her own consulting business, Pulegium Consulting. Inspired by her ancestral roots, especially her abuela (grandmother), Cynthia facilitates trainings and curriculum development for environmental educators, organizations and institutions in the topics of diversity, inclusion, community engagement and permaculture (DICP). Her use of permaculture is unique as she uses the principles, ethics and activities in her design of the trainings she offers. As a volunteer support and Environmental Educator with Latino Outdoors and within her own community, she follows her humanistic educator goal of giving opportunities to underrepresented groups to find their inner power, voice, and skills to build a socially just food and environmental system. She has a BA Degree in Sustainable Food Management from UMass Amherst and a Master of Science in Environmental Studies focusing in Environmental Education from Antioch University New England.
