Our Farm Operations Manager, Zay Gamez, celebrated her 1 year anniversary since starting on the farm. A little over 12 months ago, Zay left her steady job to join Finca as our Farm Apprentice.
Having little experience growing vegetables, she's been a quick study in the art of farming in Houston. Now she leads our farm operations as one our Farm Managers - and doing quite a fine job we might add. We couldn't feel more gratitude and appreciation for her commitment to improving the health of her friends and neighbors here in the Second Ward.
Wish her a happy farm-iversary next time you see her!
The anniversary cake was craft by Bee Holleran, a longtime volunteer at the farm, and was quite a work of art. We almost felt bad cutting into it but once we'd had a taste it didn't last long. Thank you to Bee for helping us mark this special occasion.
