About Anandi Premlall

Anandi A. Premlall is an International AgroEcological Grower and Educator of the South Asian Diaspora.

Anandi is a Certified Permaculture Educator as well as Urban Agriculture Consultant and Environmental Educator. She is based in New Orleans and inspires positive actions worldwide. Anandi promotes health and community engagement by integrating artistic creativity, holistic wellness practices, and ecological principles of building healing spaces. On International Women's Day, her work was featured on The Female Farmer Project. Her article: The Intersection of Permaculture Ethics was published in Permaculture Design Magazine #98.

While Anandi is considered the consummate eco-agricultural citizen of New Orleans, her mycelial network stems from Queens, the Caribbean and ancestral India! She is interested in urban solutions as well as rural solutions as she stands with her feet in two worlds.

Anandi continues to command further inclusion and support of women and others with diverse backgrounds through her work will alter the face of permaculture leadership and create a reflection for others, in particular young people of color and women of color who may not feel that permaculture is for them due to the appropriation of indigenous cultural practices or may not identify the work they are doing as permaculture. She wants to create opportunities for women and people of color to own land and sustain themselves and their families through an inclusive land trust and enterprises. Anandi is directly involved with co-creating systems of right livelihood where girls and women have abundant resources to support themselves through agriculture.

Anandi is particularly interested in being one of the first Indo-Caribbean women to lead and to be a reflection for the young People of the Global Marjority in her life and beyond. There are not many women and people of color leading PDCs or trainings. By being the change she wants to see in the world, Anandi is creating a container for new seeds to sprout. She wants to continue sharing and teaching about know we can co-create abundant new systems to grow food for all locally, without toxic pesticides, no genetically modified organisms, and without slave-labor.
