In this episode of the Positively Green Podcast, we have guest Sandrine Malary. Born and raised in Port-au-Prince, Sandrine Malary is part of a new generation of Haitian artists who maintain close ties to their motherland and its culture. We discuss all things gardening, building community amidst a pandemic, and home birth.
Sandrine has a degree in Psychology from the George Washington University, which she uses to relate to her community and to parent. She is a mother of 4 children. Two home-birthed in Ayiti and two in Oakland, CA. With self-sustenance as a life approach, Sandrine has homeschooled her kids, built a home garden, and created home-based online businesses as an artist and educator.
Keeping her roots strong, she dances Haitian folklore, teaches Kreyol and her art is very inspired by Vodou. Much of her focus is to uplift, not just Ayiti, but women, black people, and our planet. Sandrine advocates for green, sustainable living with a focus on health and wellness.
You can often find her walking local trails with her group “Sistas on the Trail”, creating therapeutic copper jewelry for House of Alouba, or working on her upcoming vegan cookbook.
