Mr. Farmer

Ed­die Con­way used the con­nec­tions that he had de­vel­oped within the area to draw peo­ple into lead­er­ship roles. He re­cruited farm man­ager Ausar-Mesh Amen who is in charge of main­tain­ing all three gar­dens along the block. When res­i­dents stop by the farm Amen’s the first per­son they turn to with ques­tions about the pro­duce op­tions for the day. Some even refer to him fondly as “Mr. Farmer.” He comes out seven days a week, some­times even in the mid­dle of the night, to tend to the gar­den. He also men­tors the youth vol­un­teers and es­tab­lishes con­nec­tions with other or­ga­ni­za­tions to bring in rev­enue.
