About the Speaker:
Greg has lived at his home the Urban Farm for 30 years. It is Phoenix's first environmental showcase for urban farming. This 1/3-acre yard features a primarily edible landscape, including over 70 fruit trees, rainwater and greywater 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 20 years later to get a bachelor’s degree followed directly by a Masters in Urban and Environmental Planning in 2006. He is a lifelong continual learner.
These days Greg hosts the UrbanFarmPodcast.com that in just 3 years has released over 400 episodes. The average listens per episode is just over 3000 amassing over 1.2 million listens. On his days off he hangs out in his garden with Heidi his sweetheart, Kismet his pooch and their chickens, creating new projects and catching some rays
