Introducing this year's keynote speaker:
Dior St. Hillaire

We are thrilled to introduce our 2022 keynote speaker, Dior St. Hillaire! Dior is the founder of the GreenFeen OrganiX group, which helps communities in the south Bronx with composting. According to Dior, their women-led enterprise takes your biodegradable food waste to a nearby garden, turns it into organic fertilizer, and distributes it to local Bronx farms. They're now composting in the Bronx's Riverdale and Morris Park neighborhoods. Dior began her composting education at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx, where she earned the city's Master Composter Certificate. She and the other co-founders of the GreenFeen worker cooperative are advocates for a more sustainable future. They recently finished a co-op program that is assisting them in accomplishing their goals. Dior may be reached on Twitter at GreenFeen7.
