Nhan Couch

Nhan Couch is an avid gardener who currently resides in Waverly Hall, Georgia.  She immigrated from Vinh Long province, Vietnam to the United States in 1975.  Vinh Long is located in the center of the Mekong River Plains between Tien Giang and Hau Giang Rivers.  Nhan moved from Columbus, Georgia to Waverly Hall (approximately fifteen minutes outside of Columbus) in 1997.  Living in the country allows for her to have more space for gardening and for animals.  Nhan currently has many farm animals including chickens, ducks, turkeys, and a horse.  She enjoys gardening for the excercise and for the food that it provides.  Besides planting vegetables, Nhan also enjoys landscaping flower gardens.  Besides gardening, she also enjoys her job as a landlord and remodelling houses.

    Nhan is wearing an áo dài, the traditional garment for Vietnamese women.

Nhan is standing next to sa (lemongrass).
