We help reduce Stress

Land & Sea Together is building a network of services and opportunities to reduce stress for fisheries, forestry, and farming (FFF) enterprises, workers, and their families in Rhode Island.

Land & Sea Together is a USDA Grant funded program through RI-DEM and implemented by the Center for Mediation and Collaboration RI. We have pulled together over 25 different organizational partners across the state to build a network of support for the health and well-being of the Farming, Fisheries, and Forestry communities in Rhode Island.

About Our Director

Land & Sea Together is directed by Laurel Witri, staff at the Center for Mediation and Collaboration, RI.

Laurel studied Psychology at Northeastern University, and then proceeded to farm and work in agriculture for the next 10 years. Starting with an urban rooftop garden, becoming a farm apprentice, managing a farm, and ultimately running her own farm, she has experienced the highs and lows of farming. Working with Land & Sea Together brings her work journey full circle, back to mental health. As a way to cope with her own mental health struggles, Laurel turned to farming. Now, she hopes to bring farmers (as well as foresters and fisheries workers) tools to cope with the stresses and strains of these industries. Prior to CMCRI, Laurel launched a mobile food market in three cities and provided technical support for refugee and immigrant farmers in New Hampshire. Originally from the Ocean State, she is thrilled to be back home and to connect with the food and forest systems and the many people who keep them afloat. She welcomes your emails- laurel@cmcri.org any time!
