Growing up my Father kept a large garden.  Our Saturdays were full of “opportunities," learning how deep to plant black eyed peas, how to cultivate tomatoes, and when to harvest melons.  Nothing is better than a fresh sweet corn in the heat of summer. 

It wasn’t until I became an adult that I realized how lucky I was to have this experience!  My family had land to cultivate, money to afford supplies, and time to invest in the garden and kitchen. 

I am passionate about how sustainable solutions can empower communities and the farm is a great place to develop this passion.

I farm to ensure all members of our community are connected to high quality organic fruits and vegetables.
