Benjamin is a 12 year old entrepreneur. Recently, he took his passion for farming and expanded his entrepreneurial pursuits. When his tomato plants didn’t make it, he decided to try growing something else. With the help of Sun Valley Gardens, Benjamin started to grow melons and Thai Basil for the farmers market.
On a search for basil to put in No More Empty Pots CSA’s and prepared meals, we stumbled upon Benjamin and his produce stand. He shared his love for farming and organic growing practices with us. Because he was so successful in growing delicious basil, we were able to give Benjamin his first large order!
When we engage the local food system by purchasing from local producers, we support the livelihood of the individuals and families growing nutrient dense fresh produce that is then made accessible to the community.
When we support educational and entrepreneurial opportunities for youth like Benjamin, we support intergenerational self-sufficiency through food growing and business development.
