Many citizens of the Gullah/Geechee Nation have engaged in Earth Month by continuing the agrarian traditions that their ancestors passed down. Many others have started to engage in citizens science projects and academic field work that will help build capacity in regard to resilience and sustainability not only for the land and water, but also for our cultural heritage community. If haven’t yet participated in the events that were held virtually, join in these Earth Day activities with the Gullah/Geechee Family.
