Who is Brenda? Born Brenda Gail in Alabama's Black Belt, Brenda was known for her "growing hands" just as her mother and grandmothers had also been known. Though a social worker by training, growing was her soul's balm. She would spend hours walking outside, barefoot, talking to her plants and teaching anyone within earshot. Her knowledge was astounding. She studied her plants, knew them by binomial nomenclatures as well as common names.
She grew beautiful nutrient-rich fruits and vegetable, and exotic plants for some dazzle dazzle. She loved to feed others with her bounty, and guests often went home with one of her homemade jams, jellies, and preserves.
She was baffled that none of her three daughters seemed interested in growing. We believe that Brenda is absolutely tickled that her middle daughter, Clarenda Gail, is now a farmer.
we grow with LOVE.
