Sally Silverstone was born in London, England, but her fascination with traditional cultures has taken her to East Africa, remote parts of India and Puerto Rico. From 1983 to 1994, she worked with the Biosphere 2 team, serving as manager of the design studio and the coordinator of the Biospherian Training Program. In 1991 she entered Biosphere 2 as the co-captain and food systems manager of the first crew to inhabit this unique research facility where they lived for two years, growing their own food, recycling their waste, and setting world records for human life support in an enclosed ecological system. Sally is currently CFO of the Biosphere Foundation.
