Everything in my childhood is connected to growing and harvesting fresh vegetables and fruits….I was even born in the fields! And now every day while I’m working with a wide variety of fresh produce at my job at 4Earth Farms, I think back to that time and realize it’s something beautiful that has followed me through every stage of my life. ***** Toda mi infancia esta vinculada..Al cultivo de vegetales y frutas. Ya que naci y creci en el campo. Y hoy en dia me buelvo a relacionar con esa etapa de mi enfancia. Y es algo bonito ya que me hace vivir etapas de mi vida. A la hora de chequear la varieda de productos que recibo di a dia. En mi jornada de trabajo en 4Earth Farms.
“As a young child, my grandmother had a garden in our backyard and while she was cooking, she would ask me to go pick jalapenos, tomatoes, and squash. That garden made a big impression on me and my life. I believe that is where my passion for food and fellowship developed. On Sundays our family would gather at my grandparents’ home to eat and laugh. I believe that no matter what happens in life there is no better feeling than gathering around the dinner table with your family and friends.”
