“I started a social enterprise that I call Tallahassee Food Garden. This has provided a platform to for me to earn a living, doing something I love. WWC helped me to have the confidence to think I could try something like this on my own. When I worked on the Landscaping Crew we created an edible landscape and by my second year I was the crew leader. It was conferred on me that even if I didn’t know it all, I knew enough to get by and keep going and keep learning.”
