Kutana na Timu yetu

Justin Munroe Mkurugenzi Mtendaji

Nyanya-nyanya yangu alihamia Nashua mnamo 1916 kutoka Canada na ingawa familia yangu imesafiri kwenda na kwenda kwa miaka mingi, Nashua amekuwa "nyumbani" kwetu kila wakati. Familia yangu inaishi hapa sasa na tunajaribu kuishi kidogo kutokana na mazoea na zaidi kwa kusudi.

Tunafurahiya bustani yetu wenyewe kwa mapumziko ya utulivu ambayo hutoa, na pia kwa fadhila yake yenye lishe. Kwa kuweka mizizi kwa wengine ambao hawana njia tunaweza kushiriki uzoefu huu wa utajiri na wengine na wakati huo huo kuimarisha vitongoji vya Nashua.

Stephanie Ann Aubert Mkurugenzi wa Maendeleo ya Programu

Nina shauku juu ya mifumo endelevu ya chakula na usimamizi wa mazingira, na nimejitolea kuimarisha afya ya ikolojia ya mijini katika mkoa wa Greater Nashua ambapo nilikulia.

Asili yangu ni sayansi ya mazingira na sera inayolenga katika jamii endelevu na yenye ujasiri, na nilipata Masters yangu katika Usimamizi wa Mazingira kutoka Chuo Kikuu cha Western Colorado.

Ninaleta uzoefu anuwai kwa timu ya Kukuza Nashua, kutoka kusimamia shamba hadi mpango wa chakula katika Kaunti ya Snohomish, Washington kutumia wakati kufanya kazi kwa sera ya chakula huko New Orleans. Mimi ni mwanzilishi mwenza wa Maktaba ya Mbegu Kusini Magharibi, nimeratibu miradi ya kubuni jamii, na nimefundisha wanafunzi wa miaka 2 hadi 72. Ninapenda "nje kubwa", kusafiri, na bustani ya kikaboni.

Gibril |  Curbside Compost Team Member

I moved to the United States three years ago with my four children and wife as refugees from Burundi, a country in East Africa.

 

My family was very happy to have a community garden to grow our food when we arrived here and for Grow Nashua's help to find seedlings such as African eggplant that reminded us of home. 

 

In 2021 we started our own farm business with some space on a local farm and with the help of NRCS and Grow Nashua.  We will be expanding this year to sell some of our fresh vegetables, as well as share with other community members that are in need.  

I look forward to continuing my job as a compost service driver and in growing my farm business here in Nashua.  

David  |  Garden Tender

I first met Justin during a “What can senior citizens do for Nashua” seminar where he was sharing about the goals and objectives of the Grow Nashua and I felt there was something that I could contribute to the program. Then Justin found out that I knew my way around hammers and nails, and I have been with the program ever since. That was about three seasons ago and since then we have built a lot of raised beds and moved several tons of mulch and potting soil!

 

Having grown up on a medium sized dairy farm with a large garden, I thought I knew something about raising veggies. But every time I listen to Justin explain the finer points of fall plot coverage or organic fertilizer, it becomes painfully obvious that either I did not know as much as I thought I did or have forgotten what little I did know. So, working for Grow Nashua has been a learning experience for me. 

 

This last summer I was the Ash Street Garden tender, which I thoroughly enjoyed. It was so rewarding to watch the plants grow to harvest and see the joy that was evident on the faces of the planters as they worked their plots. My wife and I have relocated from New York, where we had small gardens off and on over the years. Demands of work drew me away from gardening and working at Ash St. brought the memories of those gardens back.

So come next spring, I will be back at Ash Street, maintaining the area so the planters will have a pleasant spot to work in. See you there!!

Dave McConville Meneja wa Nafasi Zinazokua

Nilipofahamishwa kwa dhana ya kilimo cha kilimo miaka 12 iliyopita maadili, maadili na kanuni zake zilinishikilia kwa msingi wangu. Tangu wakati huo nimekuwa nikisoma, nikifanya mazoezi na kufundisha kilimo cha mimea. Kilimo cha mimea kimenipa lensi mpya ambayo naweza kutazama ulimwengu pamoja na seti ya mikakati iliyothibitishwa na mchakato wa kubuni kukuza suluhisho za ubunifu kwa changamoto za leo za ulimwengu.

Mtazamo huu mpya uliongeza shauku yangu katika bustani na uzalishaji wa chakula. Wakati huo nilikuwa nikiishi San Francisco na nilihusika mara moja katika miradi kadhaa ya kilimo cha kilimo na kilimo na miji. Hasa zaidi ilikuwa Shamba la Hayes Valley, shamba la jamii ya miji ya ekari 2.2 ambapo nilikuwa kujitolea msingi kusaidia kuendesha na kusimamia shamba pamoja na kuongoza semina na madarasa anuwai yanayohusiana na kilimo. Mradi mwingine muhimu ni mpango wa elimu ya bustani katika Hospitali ya SF VA kufundisha maveterani kukuza chakula na kuwasaidia kujifunza juu ya lishe na kuwasaidia kupona kutoka kwa ulevi na PTSD.

Baada ya kurudi Nashua, niliendelea na utaftaji wangu wa maarifa ya kilimo cha kilimo cha asili na nikaanza kutumia mitandao kupata miradi ya maana. Nilikutana na Justin mnamo msimu wa 2016 na nilianza kufanya kazi na Grow Nashua msimu uliofuata. Nimekuwa nikitumia ujuzi wangu kubuni na kusaidia kusanikisha bustani kadhaa za jamii na shule. Nimekuwa pia na hamu ya kushiriki maarifa yangu kwa kufundisha madarasa kadhaa ya bustani ya kikaboni kwa familia zilizojiandikisha katika mpango wa kukuza bustani wa Nashua na kilimo.

Ninatarajia kuendelea na kazi hii ya kuungana na watu, kujenga uhusiano na kusaidia kuunda jamii inayostahimili zaidi wakati kusaidia familia zinazohitaji kutoa chakula chenye afya, kikaboni kwa familia zao na matumaini ya siku zijazo njema.

Beatriz Reyes Mtaalam wa Kujifunza Kihisia cha Kijamaa wa Ndani

Mimi ni mwanafunzi mwandamizi wa shahada ya kwanza huko UMass Lowell anayehusika na Afya ya Umma na mkusanyiko katika Kukuza Afya ya Jamii / Afya.

Kukua huko Lawrence, Massachusetts nilikuwa na shida nyingi na watu katika jamii yangu ambayo ilinipa nguvu kuendelea na masomo katika uwanja unaolenga kuboresha maisha ya watu binafsi.

Nina shauku juu ya ufikiaji wa chakula na lishe na athari zake kwa afya, viamua kijamii vya afya, na mipango ya haki ya kijamii. Kama mwanafunzi katika Grow Nashua, nitakuwa nikifanya utafiti juu ya Kujifunza Kijamaa-Kihisia na jinsi hii inaweza kuingizwa katika mpango mzuri wa GN.

Maendeleo ya Jamii Pheni Chuma

Nilikulia Malawi, taifa dogo na zuri lililokuwa na bandari kusini mashariki mwa Afrika. Nilipokuwa mdogo, nilijitahidi kuelewa ni kwanini nchi iliyobarikiwa uzuri wa asili na ardhi tajiri ina uzoefu wa njaa na ukosefu wa lishe sugu, nilitaka kupata majibu na suluhisho

Baada ya kupata umaskini na njaa, nilikua na shauku ya maendeleo ya jamii na mnamo 2010 nilianzisha shirika lisilo la faida liitwalo Love in Action Malawi kusaidia kutoa elimu kamili kwa watoto wanaopata umaskini na kutokuwa na matumaini. Leo, mashirika husaidia watoto zaidi ya 1000 na mafunzo ya kila siku / masomo ya shule na chakula cha kila siku. Shirika langu pia linahusika kikamilifu kufundisha jamii kilimo endelevu kinacholima mazao tofauti kwenye ekari 20 za ardhi. Sisi pia tunahusika katika elimu ya haki za kijamii na utetezi.

Kukuza Nashua imenipa fursa ya kujifunza zaidi juu ya bustani ya jamii na njia bora katika kilimo. Natumai kutumia maarifa kusaidia watu nchini Malawi kujifunza njia endelevu za kilimo.

Hivi sasa ninamaliza digrii ya uzamili katika uongozi wa Shirika katika Chuo Kikuu cha Massachusetts Lowell.

Christina | Communitor Connector & Lil' Farmstand Greeter

Every summer my grandfather had tomato and cucumber plants at his cottage on the lake and would let me pick a few to include in our meals while we were visiting. That was one of my favorite childhood memories and as a mother I want to pass that onto my child.

 

Gardening is relaxing and provides well being in several ways for physical and emotional health.  Being  a veteran who has struggles with physical and mental health I've found gardening to be some of the best therapy offered in my community. After growing in two garden beds to the veterans transitional housing I was living in as a way to reintegrate veterans back into the community while also meeting their nutritional needs. I joined Grow Nashua to serve fellow community members and help diminish suffering by providing useful information on valuable resources. It’s a great experience for me to get to know our neighbors and be able to help get their immediate needs met.
