Farming status, plans, and practices
Because I have not gotten my own farmland, now I am a Lead-farmer working with The Campaign Against Hunger Inc. New York.
I'm in charge of planning and operational activities at the farm. My expertise and experience in farming made it possible for our farm at 45th Street, Beach Channel Drive Far Rockaway, NY 11691, to be among the best farm in New York City.
We are 100% Organic farmers, even all the fertilizers we use are produced organically at the farm, by myself.
I am looking for farmland so that I can grow vegetables to serve African immigrants comunities in USA, I discovered that all the vegetables
sold at all the African food markets are being imported from that continent, making the price very expensive, and I found it as a challenge to
me as a farmer from Africa I know the crops and how to grow it.
My utmost desire is to explore this opportunity that no one has ever thought about, by growing African vegetables in the United States.
