Join Greg and The Urban Farm U team twice per week for free online classes. They are offering these classes for 30 days (or as long as needed) in response to the Coronavirus so that people worldwide can feel empowered to take control of our health and food supply. These free classes are Greg and his team's way of using their expertise to help productively mitigate stress and build virtual communities in this time of uncertainty and social distancing.
Greg Peterson has been digging his toes into the earth, listening to the plants, and experimenting wih progressive permaculture techniques in his yard for over 40 years. His 1/3-acre home in Phoenix, AZ has been converted into an entirely edible landscape open to the community for tours and classes, and his fruit tree program has resuted in the planting of over 10,000 fruit trees. Greg's mission is to show others that they too can realize the power, joy and deliciousness of urban farming!
Greg received his Master's degree in Urban and Environmental Planning from Arizona State University, and has since taught at a trade school and even returned to his alma mater to teach Sustainable Food and Farms. He started UrbanFarm.org to build a community for urban farmers and home gardeners around the world to come for inspiration, education, and advice. His podcast, The Urban Farm Podcast, has been a fun and successful project with over 500 episodes.
