ABOUT ME

Meet the Bassenes!
The Bassenes and I, Tabaski 2010

I came to Senegal in August 2010 to begin work as an urban agricultural extension agent with the Peace Corps. Basically a fancy way of saying I grow vegetables and plant trees, and try to teach others how to grow vegetables and plant trees more effectively. At the moment I spend most of my time working at a hospital garden and a women’s group co-op in the city of Richard Toll, but got relocated to the village of Temeye-Thiago just 10km south of Richard Toll in April 2011. On occasion I attempt to secure funding for things like wells and drip-irrigation systems, while imbibing prodigious amounts of rice, sugar, mangoes and milk.
