I love the opportunities that farming provides, it allows me to connect with the future, the present and my past. I can feed my family, friends and neighbors. I teach them about the different fruits and vegetables I grow. Sometimes, they will get introduced to a new fruit, like papaya. They learn how they too can grow fruits and vegetables in their own yards or on their porches or balconies. I am making farming familiar and accessible to those around me. Additionally, I am honoring my family legacy. I am doing the work my family—my ancestors did to provide for their families, helping to ensure a future for me, and I intend to do the same.
