Staff Highlights  
In this week's newsletter, TLW proudly introduces, Braxton Allen, one or our 2015-2016 AmeriCorps VISTAs:

Braxton is the 2015-2016 Boulevard Food Co-op Coordinator. He oversees the food co-op, a partnership with TLW, AmeriCorps VISTA, and the Yo!Boulevard Initiative,  that aims to create positive changes in the food system and community. Braxton coordinates with the Atlanta Community Food Bank, oversees food distribution, and provides support for co-op members.

Braxton has gained an immense amount of experience and knowledge during his service year. "The lessons I have learned so far are: 1) How to say no, 2) How lines of communication work within a professional organization, 3) Solving problems in a big picture way, and 4) Looking at all of the angles of a situation before making a decision," says Braxton.

We Grow Food. We Grow People.

Farewell J. Olu     
J. Olu Baiyewu will be leaving TLW after 20 months of service to pursue other personal and professional endeavors.  J. Olu's last day is March 11. We appreciate J. Olu's service. Under his tenure, TLW has successfully transitioned our "on farm" market on Washington Road to the East Point Farmers Market in downtown East Point.  Also, TLW added Freedom Farmer's Market and is positioned to open two additional markets in the Spring.
Kofi Kwayana, TLW's Farm Manager,  will be moving into a new capacity for TLW.  Kofi has served TLW through some of our most challenging years.  Kofi started with the company as a Farm Trainer to expand our Urban Grower Program. After assuming the role of Farm Manager he has continued to help build our ag training program and, as a result, launched the Young Grower Program in 2014 and the Urban Grower Boot Camp in 2015. Kofi will now lead our urban agricultural training in TLW's expanding education department.
