Meet Your Host, Greg Peterson

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 resulted 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 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 so fun and successful that he has decided to expand his reach to even more people by starting the Edible Backyard Summit. This is now the 3rd iteration of the Edible Backyard Summit!


When is the Edible Backyard Summit? 

The Edible Backyard Summit runs each day from 11am-2pm on September 14, 15 and 16, 2021.

How does the Edible Backyard Summit work?

Each day, our visionary presenters will share educational classes on some aspect of growing food that will level up your backyard garden (or give you the tools to get started). At the end of the day, there will be live Q&A sessions where attendees can ask our experts for advice on their most current challenges in their gardens.

What if I miss something or can't make it to the entire summit?

No problem! Replays for each day will be available for 24 hours. You may also opt to purchase lifetime access to own all of the Summit presentations, which is a great option if you would like to take your time to absorb all of the information or want to be able to return to the classes again and again.

How will I know the schedule for each day? 

Once you sign up, you'll receive an email in your inbox with all of the details. You'll also receive an email every morning on the day of the summit with that day's schedule so that you don't miss a thing.

Is it really free?

Yes! The entire summit is free to attend live, and the replays of each day will be available for 24 hours. 

What if I have other questions?

Please email with additional questions.

Replays will be available for 24 hours, so don't worry if you can't make it to every session. Reserve your free spot in the summit today.
