With Smile Farms I have learned how to manage money better. I also work better as a team player in this community, where we work to reach a common goal.

My name is David Ventura and I work at Smile Farms. I mix soil and I put soil in pots. My favorite part of the job is working at the soil table. I make a very good salary and I buy magic lessons with the money I get. I think my job is awesome."

My name is Berdina Wright. I work at Smile Farms. My favorite part of the job is working in the garden. I grew up with gardens being a big part of my life at home, and I am happy to have the opportunity to continue gardening and earn a paycheck. I love harvesting produce to share with my community. Cucumbers are my winning crop!

Hi my name is Keith Caputo. I work for IGHL Smile Farms. I like spring, I like birds, and I like the sun. I like my friends and my staff, they are like family to me. And a community. I like daffodils. You pinch the stem, you cover it, you smooth it, water it a little bit. Put it in the sunlight, but not too much water, it will die. Hold it away from your body. Bye!!” Keith also has his own nonprofit @helpingmakesuhappy go check it out!
I have been at Smile Farms since it opened. I wanted to work somewhere that I could earn a paycheck. With Smile Farms I have learned how to manage money, make new friends, work together with peers, and overcome feeling shy.
