CT Collards – Lorenza Christian Jr

CT Collards is an urban farm – part of KNOX’s Incubator Farm Program. The idea for CT Collards came about while attending an urban agriculture class in 2015 offered through collaboration between Paul Newman, Capital Community College, and KNOX. My goal is to provide novelty farm products including: yellow watermelon, white strawberries, ghost peppers and hot sauce.

A little about the farmer: Lorenza Christian Jr, grew-up in Hartford, became a landscaper, ventured into vending. Now, he is a farmer providing the city with fresh locally-grown vegetables and fruit. One day, Lorenza’s goal is to offer jobs and educational opportunities to all!
