Nat is from Ghana, he’s 37 years old and he has a good enterprising spirit concerning hand work: he loves to make, destroy, and realize things.
When he moved from Airuno to Valmadrera (ex Villa Fomp) he immediately noticed a little piece of land in the garden and so he had the idea to plant corn! He has a dream, to become a farmer. When he lived in Ghana he used to work in a farm with chickens but his dream has always been to be a farmer.
Some friends gave him corn seeds, then he bought others; someone gave him tomato plants and, moreover, he collected watermelon seeds: this is how he created his own vegetable garden and he works at it every day.
Me: “What are you going to do with the corn?”
Nat: “I’m going to share it with my friends!”
Nat’s vegetable garden is very popular on Facebook. Many people take a picture of it and then they post it. It’s a matter of pride to Nat.
