The Co-owner of Rise and Shoot Farm
2018 Garden activist Karen Washington was giving a talk in New York City to help spur on the community garden movement. The theme was peace and justice.
Washington has done so much for the Bronx as an Urban Gardener. She's an award-winning gardener, farmer, and co-owner of her business called Rise and Shoot Farm.
It was Karen Washington who said,
"If you come into the garden feeling sad, you will leave feeling happy."
