Experience

In his late teens, one of Kwabena Nkromo’s mentors pointed him in the direction of food access as a focused pathway for social change. Years of nurturing people through food confirmed the power of agriculture and food to build communities and to heal people. The commitment crystallized for Kwabena during his work launching two urban farms in the West End neighborhood of southwest Atlanta and running a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program for residents. This experience led him to found AF2 in 2011. Kwabena studied Plant and Soil Science at Tuskegee University. He also founded and serves as the lead principle at Boston Food and Farm.
