Description:In 2019 I moved to Tigray, Ethiopia to work with women in off grid communities. I partnered with IEEE Smart Village to create beekeeping farm to train young women, so they can stay in their communities instead of going to big cities and facing issues like sexual violence and trafficking.
COVID delayed our plans and then the genocidal war of Tigray started in Nov 2020. I relocated back to Federal Way where my parents and siblings live. I have a masters degree and a lot of pan African investment experience, as well as a consulting firm for Racial and health Equity. I was the Program Manager of Racial equity and Justice at the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department. Fall 22 I received funding to do a PhD program at Howard University, a historical black college in DC. After 1 semester I realized that I'd rather spend the next 5 years in a farm than in an academic setting.
Which brings me here, I am looking for property that has enough space for server zipgrow pods which are complete hydroponic systems. These systems are highly sustainable as well as profitable. I got into hydroponics when I was in Tigray, Ethiopia which is famine central. I was researching way to grow food efficiently and with less water and came across hydroponic which uses 90% less water and no soil.
