In This Garden Chat:
Did you know that plants and trees need to eat every day, but we are taught to plant them in the dirt you have and feed/fertilize them once or twice a year. THAT is NOT a recipe for success. Join Greg & Janis as they share the pathway they discovered over the past 24 years to make our fruit trees, and other trees and plants for that matter thrive!
Janis is the General Manager at The Urban Farm. Here she oversees several major projects including the Fruit Tree Education Program, The Urban Farm Podcast, the annual Permaculture Design Course, as well as the online educational classes, chats, and summits. She came to the Urban Farm as an intern while earning her degree in Sustainability from Arizona State University. Using her organization and project management skills to help facilitate a couple of The Urban Farm’s larger events, she also took on managing the 2nd Annual Great American Seed Up. She was motivated to learn all she could about gardening and urban farming, eventually becoming a Master Gardener and PDC trained. 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.
