Gardening since 1988
I'm a Chicago urban farmer with an apartment container garden where we produce over 65 varieties of vegetables and herbs, as well as have quail, chickens, and rabbits. There is also a greenhouse, grow room, and indoor herb garden. I also work as a professional organic gardener for chef Rick Bayless and several other rooftop gardens and backyard clients.
