Transforming Agriculture, Perennially


Belle Furman

Research Assistant, Soils Lab

Belle Furman comes to The Land Institute from Brooklyn, NYC. She majored in Math at Williams College in Massachusetts, where she also took many humanities courses, mainly focused on questions of critical geography–investigating the social and political consequences of environment and place.


What drew you to work at TLI?
I wanted to work and learn around people who are invested in questions I’m interested in about agriculture on our burning, eroding planet.

What else are you passionate about (outside of work)?
I passionately follow the WNBA and the NWSL (National Women’s Soccer League). I also love to knit socks and mail them to my friends.

If you were to write a book, what would it be about?
It’d be a graphic novel! Definitely a queer love story. Either set in Budapest or a different universe.

What were you like at age 10?
The same but exclusively dressed in monochrome and in an intense chess phase.
