#1: Meet Libby, Fairview Elementary Community Garden
“I come from Africa. I like gardening so much because my parents were farmers in my country where I was born and they had a big farm. They taught me how to work in the garden and during vacations, we would go to work in the garden with my parents. I learned how to protect the plants, the best times to plant, and how to fit everything in the garden. In my home country, we planted lots of different things: beans, sweet potatoes, bananas, cassavas.
I prefer to work in a community garden. This year, due to Coronavirus, I have more time to work in the garden because usually when I am working, I can’t come to the garden every day. I share what I grow with my friends and neighbors because I can’t eat everything I grow by myself!”
