Board of Directors

A multigenerational resident of Atlanta and the descendant of a long line of growers, educators, entrepreneurs, and organizers, Charles was cultivated to serve his community in a unique way. In 2019, he founded ECO-PARADIGM, LLC as an official organism in Atlanta's local food ecosystem in an effort to help bring balance between ecology and economics for communities of color.

Brother Charles joined Black Sustainability, Inc. in 2016 as an attendee of our inaugural summit and soon after supported identification of potential speakers and presenters within the field of sustainable agriculture. He has moderated sessions, led outreach and continues to be active in our Sustainable Agriculture Industry House in the North America region. 

Charles loves people and nature and sees the work he does as an opportunity to support others in sustaining themselves and their communities through land stewardship.
