"CHANGING THE IMAGE OF FARMING"
"One thing we noticed is that us being a product of parents from third world countries, acquiring land was the hardest task we had to face till date. Now that we're recently acquired an acre of open land, we are looking for assistance building it up for proper use of an organic farm. With this farm we hope to "Change the Image of Farming" by inspiring other young people, especially those of color to start farming and growing their own rather its for profit, health...."
Starting his gardening journey at the young age of 7 Shawn developed his love and passion for all things plants very early. Over the years he sharpened his skills growing a variety of plants in many different ways and learned how they interact with each other and the surrounding environment. This curiosity of plant propagation continued as he pursued and attained his degree in horticulture at naugatuck valley community college. As a horticulturist Shawn currently spends his days farming and volunteering his time to help others learn the ways of organic gardening and providing healthy options all while gaining patience and appreciation for the natural world we live in.
Being born on an island where everyone is dependent on nature, Richard fell in love with plants at a young age. He was able to understand the importance of having ones own crops, whether it was to feed the family, donate, or vend. Seeking an education that would match his love for plants led him towards Horticulture (The art and science of plants) and he hasn't turned back since.
