Bio: Evelyn Block 
A Miami native, Evelyn Block has chosen to focus her work and research around the stories and cultivation of food and medicine plants from all over the world. She has worked with various communities in the United States in an effort to better understand cultivation methods, crop significance, and the varying approaches to planetary and personal well-being.
