Why did you choose to work with Rise Gardens?

I have become more conscious of where my food comes from, if I didn't grow it, I wonder who did and how? I love cooking and its simply amazing to be able to grow some of what goes on my plate.

 

What's your favorite dish to cook?

Jollof Rice (popularly known as Party Rice ) and Spicy Stewed Chicken

 

Tell us about your gardening experience.

Gardening is fun. Gardening without soil is more fun--no kneeling or digging my nails in dirt and the view of the greenery is always a beautiful sight.

 

Do you have any special secret talents?

Acting! I love to act, not many people know this but I have done a little bit of it in the past as well as worked behind the scenes on the set of a few short films and movies.
