Hi, my name is Brennan Pascal Persenaire Hogeterp (It’s a doozie I know). I am 16 years old and am in tenth grade at Grand Rapids Christian High School. I am from West Africa where my parents were both missionaries. We moved to America permanently about 3 years ago. I joined New City Neighbors Urban Farm because I thought that it would be a good experience and that it would help me achieve my dream job of becoming an agricultural engineer. This week I did a lot of weeding and pruning for the tomatoes. They need a lot of care but it’s all worth it because they taste so good. I also helped to replant the beans this week because of the heat caused poor germination.
