Meet Your Host,
Farmer Greg

Greg Peterson has been digging his toes into the earth, listening to the plants, and experimenting with progressive permaculture techniques for over 40 years.

His mission is to show others that they too can realize the power, joy and deliciousness of urban farming!

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 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 founded the Urban Farm to provide home gardeners and urban farmers with inspiration, education and advice.

Meet Your Host:
Janis Norton

Janis Norton is the General Manager at The Urban Farm, where she manages several major projects including their Fruit Tree Education Program, The Urban Farm Podcast,  and the Permaculture Design Course, as well as their online educational classes, chats, and summits.  She earned her degree in Sustainability from Arizona State University, became a Master Gardener, and took her PDC training in Phoenix. 

While Greg is the Visionary at The Urban Farm, Janis is the Implementer – using her superpowers as a project manager to make things happen and keep them on task.
