Cheryl Carmona has been gardening in Baltimore for eight years. Her interest in sustainable agriculture led her to an environmental science masters program at the University of Maryland, where she studied agricultural soil and watershed sciences. With this training, Carmona has been working to build an urban agriculture project that uses sustainable practices to raise awareness about the connections between agriculture and the environment, grow healthy food, and develop an urban community around agriculture. Carmona’s extensive background in soil and environmental science, coupled with nutrient management skills, bring a whole lot to the table when it comes to converting material, often deemed waste, into organic fertilizer.Cheryl will be speaking at the Maryland Fairs
