110: Greg Peterson of The Urban Farm
Sarah Wilson from Roots and All podcast invites Greg to speak about The Urban Farm, his environmental showcase home that supports just about every eco-friendly practice you can imagine. Greg knew from a young age that many of the world’s systems are dysfunctional, especially our global food system. Among many solutions that Greg emphasizes, one is urban gardening and his mission is to help guide people to embrace and grow their own edible landscapes. Greg will stop at nothing to embrace the current challenges and his considerable amount of ingenuity has allowed him to create his own regenerative systems among his landscape. From plants that re-pollinate annually and even a consistent watering source to his space in the middle of the desert. Greg shares all the different ways one can implement inexpensive regenerative and sustainable design to any landscape big or small.

#6: Greg Peterson – The Urban Farm
Cottonwood Stone has an in-depth conversation with Greg about the importance of getting away from the ‘system’, connecting with the earth, and how we can truly eat healthier. Greg asks the question “What if…” every day and this open-minded thought process has led him down a path of exploring all possibilities of working with nature and he makes it happen. One of those questions is “What if there was a garden or fruit tree in every yard?” or what about a food forest? A concept that seems nearly impossible, however it is very possible with the use of regenerative design. Greg points out that human systems in every arena are inherently degenerative, while nature is a system that supports itself. From educational webinars, seed saving classes, fruit tree programs, and teaching courses on regenerative design, Greg shares all the different ways he is working towards his movement to teach regenerative gardening skills that will transform our food system “one yard at a time”.

Water Harvesting at The Urban Farm
Tom Christopher and Greg Peterson have an informative discussion all about water harvesting and its importance to any landscape, arid or wet. Greg speaks to the many ways and sources that one can access free water in and around their landscape from the most obvious such as rain to the not so obvious like air conditioning condensation. Among those ways, there are systems that can become costly and Greg points out the alternative collection and storing methods that are inexpensive and incorporates “planting water in the ground”. Neighborhoods are usually designed to divert water into the streets, a concept Greg says does not make sense because landscapes should be designed to redirect water into your space. Greg shares his perspective on looking at our natural landscape systems in a different way as well as the key pieces on the best ways to preserve water.
