Greg Peterson - 250th Episode Special
Interviewing Farmer Greg himself - about his life mission and creating The Urban Farm.
In this podcast: This is the 250th episode of The Urban Farm Podcast with Greg Peterson and the tables are turned as our guest host Jake Mace gets to take control of the interview. Greg tells us his story, how writing a mission statement for a college assignment affected him, and why naming your farm is so important to him. And, he shares more about the origin of The Urban Farm Nursery and of Urban Farm U.
Greg has lived at the Urban Farm for almost 30 years. His 1/3-acre yard features an entirely edible landscape, including over 70 fruit trees, rainwater and grey-water harvesting, solar applications, and extensive use of reclaimed and recycled building materials.
Greg is a longtime permaculture advocate, flunked out of university in 1981 because he was bored, then went back twenty years later to get a bachelor’s degree and a Masters in Urban and Environmental Planning in 2006 and is a lifelong continual learner.
On his days off he hangs out in his garden with his sweetheart Heidi and their chickens, creating new projects and catching some rays.
