“I am retired. I used to work in community services. Now I volunteer with the church, the African American Cultural Center, and a few other places. With the AACC, we recently were given a piece of land. It was an old nursery that went out of business. We have created a garden for urban youth to come and try their hand at gardening. We have two ponds we are working on renovating right now so that the kids can camp out, fish, clean ’em, and cook ’em up. I have big dreams, but am always scaling them back due to lack of resources… funds, that kind of thing. But I am still dreaming big.”
