Meet the Team
We're the faces that grow your food. Nice to meet you!
Moses is the founder of St. Simon's Farm. Born and raised in Miami with Italian and Bengali parents, he strives to incorporate culturally diversified methods into his agricultural practices. Previously on his way to becoming a doctor, Moses was inspired to devote his career to farming and obtained his Bachelor's of Science in Biology. When he's not in the fields, you can find him working on cars, welding, and boxing.
FARM INTERN ALUM
I’m Nynne, 31 years old and from Denmark. Nynne has a masters degree in environmental planning and is studying to be a gardener. It’s important to Nynne to farm in a way that harms nature as little as possible and she's very interested in local food systems. Seeing so many new initiatives with young people choosing to farm sustainably gives her hope for the future! Nynne is pleased to join the team at Urban Vegetable Project to learn and get inspired.
When she's not gardening she spends her time knitting, doing yoga, mediating and beekeeping. She is in her third year as a beekeeper and is taking care of six beautiful bee families in her garden.
