Sulaiman Mathew-Wilson - Alliance for Watershed Education of the Delaware River

Sulaiman Mathew-Wilson

“Throughout high school, I worked as a student grower at Bethel AME Ardmore Victory Gardens, a community garden in my neighborhood. Through this experience, I promoted food justice in my community by completing food justice advocacy projects. Examples of this include: running free vegetable farm stands and seedling distributions, as well as organizing community garden bed
installations. Being able to do environmental justice work in Philadelphia is the biggest reason as to why I applied and became a 2024 Fellow. I am excited to discover and implement long-term, sustainable solutions to environmental injustices revolving around water quality, safety, and access taking place in West Philadelphia.”
