This story is here to inspire everyone who wants to get better at doing something they love. Kendall Ray Johnson is one very special 6-year-old, from Georgia, as he has a true passion for farming and started showing interest in this craft at an early age.
She has recently become the youngest certified farmer in Georgia, and she couldn’t be happier. Kendall’s interest in farming can be traced back to her grandmother, Laura “Kate” Williams who also loves spending time in the garden and showering it with care and attention. Kendall’s mother said her daughter’s hobby started at the age of 4 when she grew a small patio garden which turned into a full garden in time.
After the family moved to another home, Kendall started planting so many species that now she owns a farm. As she is looking to take her passion to the next level, Kendall started a fundraising campaign to gather $10,000 and build an outdoor agricultural science lab that will be used for composting.
Besides wanting to take care of her farm, she wants to meet new people and make new friends through her project, but also inspire other children to follow their dreams.
“She started to see it go from a seed, to a plant, and then die and come back. She saw the plant life cycle of that and was like, wow,” Kendall Rae’s mom, Ursula Johnson, told 11 Alive.
Two weeks ago, the city of South Fulton, where she lives, declared Sept. 28 “Kendall Rae Appreciation Day” for her work in her garden.
