We would like to highlight Ms. Aseylean Brown for the Oktoobar 2023 Faces of FACCES! Ms. Brown has been participating in the FACCES Urban Garden greenhouse all through the summer with her great grandson and her dog by her side!
“I was born and raised on a farm. We grew our food. I didn’t think I’d use those skills again until I got here.” Ms. Brown shares.
Starting from scratch, Ms. Brown has played a huge part in planting for the summer and harvesting the produce as well. The produce ranges from Cucumbers, Zucchini, Tomatoes, Beans and more! The FACCES Urban Garden tilapia have grown too as we look to begin harvesting them soon.
She now has begun preparing for the Fall harvest, planting seeds both in the greenhouse and outside in the outdoor garden beds.
“You know you don’t have to buy all your food; you can grow it too.”
We appreciate and commend Ms. Brown for her contribution, and the joy she has for the community!
